Celebrating World Yoga Day: An Ode to Harmony and Sustainability

As the sun rises on June 21st, the world unites in a collective breath, celebrating World Yoga Day. This day is more than a mere date on the calendar; it is a call to reconnect with ourselves, each other, and the planet we call home. At Melvin Jones, we embrace this ancient practice not just as a form of exercise, but as a philosophy that intertwines seamlessly with our commitment to sustainability.

"Sustainability is not a concept – it is the way nature is constructed." - Sadhguru

This profound statement by Sadhguru resonates deeply with our ethos. Our planet is in critical need of our help and a significant overhaul of our societal values. We hope to move you, motivate you, and inspire you to live kinder to Earth. Take action. Reduce your waste. On this World Yoga Day, let us celebrate living with gratitude towards Mother Earth, ourselves, and our people. At the end of the day, what matters most is our people and our planet.

Origin of Yoga

Yoga, an ancient practice that originated thousands of years ago in India, offers a path to harmonize with nature. It is a beautiful metaphor for life, emphasizing breathing, flexibility, and strength to boost mental and physical well-being. Through its disciplined techniques, yoga teaches self-discipline, gratitude, detachment, and the importance of living without greed. Peace is our very nature, and yoga leads us to this inner sanctuary of tranquillity.

Buy Better Buy Less

At Melvin Jones, we salute yoga and its enduring legacy. Our commitment to sustainability is a natural extension of the values yoga espouses. We create unique products using only natural fabrics, shunning plastic in all forms. Our packaging and trims are crafted from 100% biodegradable raw materials, ensuring they do not harm our environment. As a brand, we advocate for ‘buying better and buying less’, a simple yet powerful mantra that can significantly minimize the impact of climate change.

Our fashion choices are another mode of expression. We can surpass the polyester pangs and engage in wearing products that do not end up in landfills. Just as yoga takes you closer to your true nature, choosing sustainable fashion helps you align with the natural world. It's about living in harmony with the planet, reducing our footprint, and nurturing a lifestyle that respects the delicate balance of our ecosystem.

Action and Reaction

Imagine a world where every breath you take is clean and pure, where the air is free from the toxins of overproduction and waste. Even if you do not believe in climate change, wouldn't you prefer breathing cleaner air? Our actions today determine the quality of life for future generations. By embracing yoga and sustainable living, we contribute to a healthier, more vibrant planet.


On this World Yoga Day, let us pledge to live with a deeper sense of gratitude and responsibility. Let us honour the ancient practice of yoga by integrating its principles into our daily lives and choices. At Melvin Jones, we are dedicated to this mission. We believe that by living mindfully and making conscious choices, we can create a ripple effect that transforms our world.

Form a connection

As we flow through our yoga practice today, let each movement remind us of our connection to the Earth. Let each breath serve as a reminder of our commitment to sustainability. Together, we can cultivate a world where our people and planet thrive in harmony.

Join us in this celebration of life, love, and the pursuit of a better world. Embrace the spirit of yoga, live with intention, and let your actions reflect the change you wish to see. Happy World Yoga Day from all of us at Melvin Jones.
