The eco-credentials of cork products
Cork is harvested from the cork oak (Quercus suber ) and is a completely sustainable resource grown in the Mediterranean region of Europe. The bark of the cork oak is stripped every seven to nine years leaving the tree intact and able to grow more cork for future use. Suberstyle cork textile (thin layers of cork fused to a high-quality cotton cloth) is entirely sourced from the cork groves of Portugal, which is the source of over half the cork on earth.
Cork products are good the planet
Cork is eco-friendly and promotes environmental conservation of habitats essential for Mediterranean flora and fauna to flourish. These species include the Iberian Lynx, the most endangered big cat in the world, which once thrived in the vast expanses of cork groves in Spain and Portugal. The Lynx numbers have dwindled as their habitat has come under increasing threat from road and dam building, as well as the wine industry as they try finding alternatives to traditional cork bottle stoppers. Purchasing Suberstyle cork products is a step towards maintaining and expanding this habitat.
