Why we love cork so much 💚

It was not necessarily on our agenda that our first products would be made of cork and we will certainly also offer products made of other materials in the future. In today's blog post, we will explain that cork is very diverse and has completely convinced us with an almost unbeatable ecological balance.

Cork is obtained from the bark of the cork oak tree and is harvested for the first time when it is around 25 years old and then every 9 years. A single cork oak can produce up to 1,000 kg of cork and the tree can live up to 250 years.

A peeled cork oak binds up to four times more carbon dioxide and is therefore positive for people and nature.

No tree has to be felled for this, the use of cork thus actively contributes to climate protection and results in an all-round positive ecological balance.

And the product properties also completely convince us:

• Cork is antibacterial and antiallergic
• Natural and very pleasant feeling on the skin
• Hard-wearing and durable material
• Versatile use
• Fully biodegradable

All of these positive qualities are fully in line with our #iamtreeletic criteria. And that cork is not only natural, but can also look very beautiful, you can of course convince yourself in our shop.
