cork: 100% sustainable

Cork is one of the most environmentally friendly materials out there. Made from the bark of oak trees – which are not cut down – simply stripped of bark which re-grows.

This is a skilled trade so not only does cork harvesting provide employment, the trees also absorb the harmful CO2 from the atmosphere.

Eco friendly, sustainable, naturally odor and water repellant. Cork is great for insulation, instruments, fishing, coasters and event promotion!
