People and Planet Cork People and Planet Cork

Did you know Cork is the outer bark of the cork oak tree, which grows in the Mediterranean region of the world? This tree has a lifespan of about 200 years, and it must be 20 to 25 years old before it can provide its first harvest of cork.

After extracting the cork, a new layer starts generating and nine years must pass until a new harvest can take place. The cork harvesting is made in a sustainable way and does not harm the tree which is never cut down or removed.

It’s the only tree whose bark can regenerate itself after harvest leaving the tree unharmed. Plus, it has the remarkable capacity to retain carbon, making cork a naturally sustainable product. Its use contributes to the preservation of the environment and a unique habitat in the world.
