August Moon Organics began as a yoga supply company, making original Yoga Mats and meditation cushions for students interested in environmentally sensitive products. The mat was designed by the owner of August Moon Organics, Catherine Jacobsen, a former yoga teacher looking for a more natural mat for her own practice. When she learned about the environmental impact of conventional cotton on the world's ecosystems and discovered conventional cotton was the most polluting crop on the planet using more pesticides, chemicals and herbicides for cultivation than any other crop worldwide, a decision to use only organic cotton was the logical choice. More products were added to the yoga supply business to encompass our new Virtual Store selections and August Moon Organics has now evolved into an expanded line of organic cotton products for our new energy, green lifestyles.
Our home base in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Central Virginia reflects our green lifestyle and commitment to "green living" by the food we nurture ourselves with, the homes we live in, and the products we produce to sustain a more environmentally conscious awareness. We actually live and work in a county named "Greene"!
Tracking down the finest quality cotton has been quite a challenge, but we remain convinced that every acre of land that is converted to growing organic crops means a safer, cleaner less toxic future for us all.
