Natural vs. Synthetic rubber foam ? search project solution help

  1. Nov 7, 2011 #1
    Hello everybody
    I have a mass production project for a new product .
    The thing is to be made in foam , sheets...it is some material involved .
    To visualize the idea think about the Yoga mat sort of material but much thick..

    Natural or Synthetic ?..provided there is to be found a natural rubber foam sheet that thick on the market , any market , and at what price (?!)..

    The other option is Synthetic rubber , EVA foam , thick (for sure) up to 4" . Affordable price .

    My question is , what is , at the end , less harmful for the environment ?
    Would someone please provide details on EVA foam cycle and recycle ?
