The Story of Cork
Cork is one of the most sustainable materials to use. Cork is stripped from the tree once the tree is mature, and the bark grows back and is harvested again a decade later. This process is repeated over and over throughout the tree’s lifetime, which may exceed 200 years. Stripping a cork oak of its bark also enhances its ability to absorb carbon dioxide; in Portugal alone, cork trees help offset over 10 million tons of CO2 every year. Many think cork trees are endangered because of the demand, however it is a myth and the opposite is true- the demand helps the trees regenerate cork and help farmers thrive - synthetic corks in the wine industry do not support the regeneration of cork, the stripping of the bark actually helps cork regenerate
