How we turn recycled car windhsield into mats
As the world becomes increasingly focused on sustainability and eco-friendliness, many industries are looking for ways to reduce waste and create products that are kinder to the environment. So is the fitness and wellness industry, where companies are looking for ways to produce sustainable workout equipment. Chang Wong is excited to share its developments of sustainable yoga mats made from recycled car windshields.
Car windshields are made from laminated safety glass, which consists of two glass layers with a thin interlayer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) in between. On average, each car contains 2kg of PVB. When they are damaged, most of them end up in landfills, and the amount is increasing by approximately 15000 tons per month. If left untouched, it would take an estimated one million years for them to decompose.
However, Chang Wong have found a way to repurpose this waste material by turning PVB into a resin that can be used to create workout mats and yoga mats. The process involves separating, purifying, and modifying the waste PVB to create a durable material called FILIE.
Filie has proven to be a robust material that can be used to make durable yoga mats. The production process of these mats does not involve any PVC or DMF, which meets the REACH regulation and is GRS certified. This makes them not only eco-friendly but also safe for use by yoga enthusiasts.
These sustainable yoga mats are perfect for anyone who wants to make a positive impact on the environment while practicing yoga. They are available in different sizes, thicknesses, and colors, and they offer the same level of comfort and stability as traditional yoga mats. Furthermore, they are easy to clean and maintain, making them a great investment for yoga studios and home practice.
In conclusion, sustainable yoga mats made from recycled car windshields are a great step towards a greener future. By using these mats, you are not only reducing waste but also supporting the development of sustainable products. So why not make the switch to a sustainable yoga mat today and contribute to a healthier planet!
