WHO ARE Friends of the Earth?
We are very proud to support Friends of the Earth. Friends of the Earth is an international community that brings together more than two million people in 75 countries dedicated to the protection of the natural world and the wellbeing of everyone in it. It leads campaigns, provides resources and information, and promotes alternative solutions aimed at creating a cleaner, healthier, fairer world for everyone, for today and generations to come. We believe that by working together we can protect people and the planet!
We created Liforme's 'Purple Earth' Mat in a naturalistic hue to honour our dedication to sustainability and conservation. 5% of all sales are donated to support the work of Friends of the Earth.
WHITE MAGIC IS EARTH MAGIC
The Liforme 'White Magic' Mat, designed in collaboration with International Yoga teacher Kino MacGregor, was created in honour of the connection with nature that White Magic, also known as Earth Magic, brings to us. 5% of all sales are donated to support the work of Friends of the Earth.
At Liforme, the health of our planet is a top priority. When I started developing Liforme products, I learnt all about common materials used in Yoga mats and that these materials can in some cases be unnecessarily damaging to the planet. I soon realised that creating environmentally low-impact yoga products had become one of the most important focal points for Liforme.

The History of the Yoga Mat
The development of the Yoga mat as we know it is quite an interesting story. Watch our animated journey through the history of the mat, from animal skins to carpet underlay, as Yogis searched for the perfect steady and comfortable base for their practices. Discover why PVC mats are so toxic for the environment (not to mention not very effective at offering cushioning and traction) and learn why it’s more important than ever to choose a body-kind and planet friendly mat.
