We love cork products. It is a gift from the earth that can return to the earth.
Sustainably harvested cork is biodegradable and durable - an excellent alternative to foam, plastics, and PVC.
Cork also has anti-microbial properties that we appreciate, especially as the past few years have taught us to be more hygiene-conscious.
Most cork used for yoga gear is sustainably picked from oak trees. Oak trees are the only type of tree that regenerates their bark. When the bark is stripped from the tree, it allows the tree to absorb five times more CO2.
It's a win-win-win.
