Biodegradable Yoga Mat Developed

A biodegradable and compostable yoga mat called ‘Moorhen Yoga Mat’ developed from water hyacinth by six young girls from the fishing community in Assam could turn this water plant from a nuisance to wealth. The girls belong to the fishing community living in the fringe of the Deepor Beel, a permanent freshwater lake in the southwest of Guwahati city, recognized as a Ramsar Site and a bird wildlife sanctuary. The lake has been a source of livelihood for nine villages of the fishing community who shared this biome for centuries, but over the years suffered from excessive growth and accumulation of water hyacinth. The innovation by the girls could contribute significantly towards the environmental conservation and sustainability of Deepor Beel and also ensure local livelihood.
