And of course they look amazing, are very lightweight and most durable. Could it be any better?
Why is it Sustainable?
Many people think that the tree dies when you strip it from it's bark. For cork trees that is not the case. It's the only tree on the planet that is not harmed by this. It's actually really good. Here is why:
The cork oaks are not harmed as the bark grows back. In the regeneration process of the bark, the cork oaks take up 300-500% MORE CO2 than the unstripped trees! So the trees utilize the harmful CO2 that we produce so much of. Furthermore, the diverse ecosystems are benefitting from the extraction of the cork by helping to maintain and ensure the survival of the environment. So to use cork brings many benefits with it. AND, It's also a great alternative to animal fur!
The mission of Corature is to change the mindset in our consumer behaviour by making eco-friendly, vegan and cruelty free products that you will use, love and enjoy!
