Cork is a super star on the list of sustainable materials that can be used to make a wide variety of products that people love. It’s a 100% natural, renewable, recyclable, and biodegradable material–plus, it can be obtained through an Earth-friendly harvesting process.
Cork oak trees don’t need to be cut down to harvest the cork. Instead, the bark is harvested by hand every nine years, and cork oak trees can live for up to 300 years. When cork is harvested, a tree is saved.
And it gets better: when the cork bark is harvested, the tree is able to absorb even more CO2 from the environment.
