OUR SUSTAINABLE DIFFERENCE
Set Intentions is a sustainable, mobile, yoga community based on the first of the foundational yogic principles called Yamas is ahimsa (ah-HIM-sah) which means non-harming towards all living beings. We believe we have a responsibility to treat Mother Earth and her creatures well and we’re on a mission to spread awareness about living a low impact and mindful lifestyle.
What does that mean? Not only are we bringing yoga and mindful movement practices to you but when you work with us, you can trust that all of the yoga practice supplies we provide you to participate and any products, and partnerships we have are Earth and animal friendly, and ethically made.
We limit waste, especially single-use plastic. 9.1 BILLION tons of plastic has been created since plastic was introduced in the 1950s and nearly every piece of it still exists and will for hundreds of years.
Most standard yoga mats are made of PVC, one of the most commonly used thermoplastic polymers in the world, also known as vinyl. Our Earth-friendly mats made with a natural fabric called jute and are completely non-toxic and phthalates free. There is no latex, lead, or heavy metals, instead utilizing sustainable materials standing up to the pollutants and devastating impacts on people and the planet that irresponsibly-made mats, props and many yoga apparel have.
Additionally, our blankets are made from recycled fibers, our bolsters and straps are cotton, and our pop up set up is upcycled. We’re also constantly looking for ways to limit waste and we’re an open book.
We partner strategically with brands on the same mission to put the planet and her creatures first. We also compost and recycle, and make these receptacles available on site for you at our events, and for the carbon footprint we do output, we donate a portion of our annual earnings to organizations who are working to save the planet.
We wish to inspire others to live mindfully, considering their impacts on the environment, in addition to their own bodies' needs. We believe in ahimsa.
