One of the special characteristics of the evergreen cork oak, which is mostly native to the Mediterranean area, is its unique bark which regenerates itself. There’s no other material which comes close to the flame-retardant, water-repellent and insulating cork – and that’s a good thing too.
Only nature is able to create something that is as perfect and complete as the cork oak. It is an ecological miracle from the roots right up to the treetop, with every part holding a benefit for the environment. One of its many talents is that it can bind large quantities of CO2.
Environmental protection is a hot topic around the world. We separate waste, try to avoid plastic and use renewable energy. The cork oak, a true natural wonder, shows, however, that nature has the best solutions when it comes to sustainability.
