Why is your product Green?
Cork is 100% natural and biodegradable, originating from the bark of the cork oak tree. It is made up of 40 million cells per cm3. The cork is harvested for the first time when the tree reaches the age of 25, after which it is carefully removed by hand once every 9 years without damaging the tree.
