Natalie Oldroyd is the socially conscious founder of Yoga Democracy, an ethical yoga wear company founded on the belief that corporate philosophy could match the practice and values of yoga. At the core of everything is the concept of Ahimsa which means do no harm, this impacts on the fabrics used, the way garments are assembled and also the decision to recycle all inputs used in the dyeing process. Natalie is passionate about yoga and felt compelled to start Yoga Democracy as she felt there was a disconnect between the principles of yoga and the type of apparel that was on the market and available to the yoga community. With this in mind Natalie decided to create a yoga brand that would be high on quality and high on ethics.
All garments are produced in Arizona, USA to high ethical standards with a commitment to USA manufacturing for the long term and materials are sourced only from responsible manufacturers. Yoga Democracy is committed to making 95% of its garments from recycled fibers and giving back is part of its DNA as 10% of net profits are donated to environmental causes worldwide. Recycled nylon that is used contains 65% recycled content including fabric remnants, fishing nets and carpets. This means less energy is used in the production process than for standard or virgin nylon and without the need to compromise on durability, texture or fabric recovery so maintaining a high quality.
As well as making stylish, high quality ethical yoga wear Yoga Democracy is committed to helping reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. Printed leggings are made from 78% recycled polyester made from 100% post-consumer product. Each pair of leggings are representative of around 12 standard size water bottles while tops and shorts made from recycled nylon represent around 1/2 lb of recycled fishing net. Compared to the energy used and greenhouse gasses emitted by standard counterparts the Yoga Democracy manufacturing process for recycled nylon and recycled polyester uses one half the energy and produces one half the greenhouse gas emissions.
