This product was ethically made in Portugal in small family-owned cork farms and, for every product sold, we donate a percentage to our youth mental health partners.
No tree(s) are ever cut to create our products. Instead, they are made by stripping the bark during peak harvest times. This harvesting process helps regenerate the tree, contributing to their thriving live span of up to 200 years. In addition to the sustainability of our production, our products are 100% recyclable, vegan, & free of plastic, rubber, and/or latex.
Portugal’s forests produce half of the world’s supply of cork, carefully regulating the industry to protect the integrity of the environment while creating high-wage seasonal jobs for 10k+ workers annually. Corc Yoga only sources, partners with, & supports small family-owned cork farms & factories.
Cork trees naturally store carbon to regenerate their bark. Every year, cork oak forests absorb up to 20 million tons of CO2, while reducing greenhouse gases. These forests support one of the highest levels of biodiversity among forest habitats, as well as the highest diversity of plants found anywhere in the world. So, the best way to support the preservation of these habitats is to choose cork over other synthetic products.
