“If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.” Vincent Van Gogh
So many of our Recycled Mats designs are inspired by nature and the beautiful world around us. We all know that spending time outdoors and embracing nature is good for both our physical and mental health. What better way to do this than with the Gum Leaves & Waterholes range designed by Indigenous artist Caitlin Trindall? She believes there is no better feeling than sinking your bare feet into the sand, dipping into the freshwater dam, and closing your eyes to listen to the sound of rustling gum leaves in the breeze.
Getting outdoors doesn’t just help us escape the stresses of daily life but it’s also a wonderful way to relax. Reconnecting with our environment can have a profound impact on our mood and behaviour. It helps to reduce anxiety and stress, as well as increase our attention span. Why not grab your outdoor mat and take time out in nature?
Part of our yoga mat range is the nature-inspired Australian Natives Eco Rubber & Microfibre Suede yoga mat. It's an in-house design and is also available as a mousepad, doormat and cushion cover. Click here for other Australian Natives designs and products in our range.
Wandering outdoors can also boost our positive emotions such as feelings of wonder and contentment. Most of us would admit to finding a sunrise or sunset somewhat moving and inspirational. Few of us can walk past a beautiful red and purple sky without stopping to take a look and maybe upload a picture to Instagram. The same can be said of star-filled skies and open oceans that leave us in awe. Our outdoor mats provide the perfect foundation for both sky and star gazing!
When you see a flower in full bloom or when a butterfly flutters past, stop to think of all that it represents and of the intricate beauty therein. Try and appreciate the majesty in even your smallest moments. See our range of other nature-inspired designs here and celebrate and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us.
Go on walks, travel the country, plan that camping or road trip and what better way to complement your adventure than with one of our camping mats? They are practical and hard-wearing, and they bring comfort and style to any campsite. Soft underfoot yet sturdy, our recycled plastic mats have stood the test of time and can be found across the country in caravan parks, schools, and gardens as well as music festivals and events.
