Yoga Mat Mousepads
You might not think to upcycle a yoga mat, but they make super cute DIY mouse pads. They are even reversible. Everyone loves something that is both functional and fashionable. Yoga mats are most commonly made from PVC, and include phthalates, lead, and cadmium, which are all harmful to the environment. When a yoga mat is thrown away, it will sit in a landfill and never biodegrade, and continue to release these chemicals into the Earth. So, when it comes time to get rid of your old yoga mat, upcycle it into something new and insanely useful.
