Cork is a wonder of nature: it grows only on one tree, the cork oak tree.The cork tree has a lifespan of 200-250 years. During it’s lifespan, a cork tree allows about 15-16 harvests repeated every 9 years, producing hundreds of kilos at each crop and survives in a very poor climacteric environment. The cork stripping is assured by skilled labor and does not harm the tree in any way, being a vital process for the tree’s reinvigoration.
Environmental benefits of Cork
Cork oak trees also make a significant contribution to our planet. Of course, the ability of trees to provide oxygen via photosynthesis is common knowledge, however, cork oak trees can point another, a very meaningful string to their bow which, thanks to their particular cell structure, is the capacity to soak up climate-warming carbon. The cork trees in Portugal alone retain over four million tonnes of carbon dioxide every year, plus natural cork is also a far more nature-friendly option when it comes to its production compared to other choices. Also, finally, let’s not forget that cork is 100% natural, totally recyclable, decomposes naturally, comes from a sustainable source without cutting one single tree.
