The yoga industry has 16 million participants and is continuing to grow. The green movement is also on the rise with people becoming more conscious about how the decisions they make will affect the environment. Consumers are spending more time researching products online and then making purchases, instead of always going to a brick and mortar store.
There are several competitors in this industry and including large organizations with online and brick and mortar stores and smaller companies that only sell online. Go Green Yoga Mats plans to set themselves apart through their high quality products and package deals. They offer a variety of eco-friendly yoga mats and package deals for consumers to choose from. They even have a MATmatcher to help customers determine what option is best for them. All of their products are sold at the same or lower price than their competitors making them a better choice for most consumers. The website also contains additional information about yoga so consumers can continue to gain more knowledge about the industry while they shop.
The key in this industry is to create a user friendly and trust worthy company that sells high quality eco-friendly products with great customer service.
