Donna Lee, founder of R-Yolo, has created a solution to sports mats clogging up landfills.



MISSION TO MAKE A CHANGE and launched him all over Hollywood. >> Can you come up with a solution to life’s challenges? Donna says she did. In 2020, we took an online class that she says opened a new door in her life. >> i have it in my journal. Can I write on the first day? I had no idea how I was going to do it. >> he doesn’t consider himself an adventurer. After all, 95 he has a desk job, but he considered himself a solution seeker. >> give me a problem and i’ll figure it out, find a better way to do it. >> In this case, the problem was the mats this yoga practitioner found at the gym. >> i was kind of going out with gym mats. I used to use them and then get a woman and wipe it off. I wipe it off before use and after, because you never know. Where landfills fill up, they don’t last long. People are constantly replacing mattresses because they can’t clean them. >> So he decided to create a reusable, washable yoga mat. This idea came to his mind in January 2020. >> i need a turkish towel, i need a pillow and i need a non-slip rubber. I’m going to put it all together and this will be my prototype. >> Disinfection of sports mats is important. Epidemic or otherwise, germs, including those that cause athlete’s foot and plantar warts, can live on surfaces. With these mats, everything goes in the washing machine. >> R-YOLO STANS FORT Remember you only live once. In 2018, I left a yoga class and was in a rather freak car accident. I didn’t have many serious injuries, just because I had quit yoga. And yoga saved my life that day. >> Today, the patent-pending design is not far from his prototype. >> The top layer is a Turkish towel. The middle layer is A — it’s called one sided fusible foam. And it comes from Limerick, Maine. And the bottom layer is a non-slip rubber used in sailboats. I GET IT FROM A COMPANY IN PLYMOUTH. So all the pieces come together, they’re sent to Cranston, and they assemble it. >> just a year after the first mat, he was in california sharing his design on the west coast. >> i met a gentleman who owned a boutique shop and he offered me to be in luxury bags for pre-oscar events. All these celebrities >> Now he’s looking to the future, hoping there’s more to come. >> it’s been an incredible journey coming up with this idea. I’ll be honest, a few times I wanted to just hit the record and it was fun. I really enjoyed it. But it was a hobby, and now it is not clear that it is a hobby. Anthony: Everything is made in England and he says it should last for years. Shayna: He has big plans for her, where she hopes to feed the sharks at ABC’s Shark Tank. We wish him the best of luck with that and that’s it for tonight. Thank you for joining us. My name is Shayna Seymour. Anthony: I’m Anthony Everett. good afternoon. Thanks for joining us tonight. We hope to see you back here tomorrow night. [CAPTIONING PERFORMED BY THE NATIONAL CAPTIONING INSTITUTE, WHICH IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ITS CAPTION CONTENT AND ACCURACY. VISIT NCICAP.ORG]
