A smaller environmental footprint
Industries are heavily dependent upon natural resources – and fashion is certainly no exception. While there are serious environmental impacts associated with the processing of some fabrics and materials, cork has a substantially smaller environmental footprint.
“Whoever cares about his grandchildren plants a cork oak tree.” Portuguese proverb
One of the most renewable and eco-friendly resources on the planet
Every time a cork oak tree is harvested, it absorbs more CO2 to aid the bark’s regeneration process. So, regularly harvested cork oak trees store three to five times more CO2 than those left unharvested. Since only the bark is removed to obtain the cork, the tree goes on living and helping us clean our air. Some cork trees can live for up to 300 years, meaning a single tree can supply cork for many generations.
Supporting cork is supporting nature
The financial viability of cork and its growers helps provide long-term protection for a unique and fragile ecosystem – one of the world’s highest levels of forest biodiversity, which constitutes a habitat for rare and even endangered species, like the Iberian lynx.
