Cork

  • Better than a renewable resource because it is a harvested resource(only the bark is harvested from the tree)
  • A recycled product because cork floors are made from the waste cork that makes wine stoppers.
  • A law in the 1930’s called“The 9 Year Law”was passed to keep cork from being harvested any sooner than every 9 years.The tree has to reach 60 cm in circumference before it can be harvested.The first harvest from a cork tree can only occur at age 25.
  • The tree is not destroyed or damaged when harvesting cork.
  • To complete the environmentally sound process,water based finishes and adhesives should be used.
  • Custom stains available in a variety of different colors.
  • There are many patterns to choose from.
