Cork-blimey! Unfortunately, money doesn’t grow on trees but the next best thing does – wallets! Corature produces wallets from corks, a highly sustainable material. Bark is harvested from the cork tree, which isn’t cut down and won’t be harmed – it’s the only tree in the world where the bark can be completely stripped without damaging the tree. Instead, it grows back and takes in 300-500% more CO2 than an unstripped tree!
By increasing the use of cork in industries such as fashion, demand rises for their survival and maintenance, which can only be a great thing. Cork oak forests are some of the most biodiverse forests on the planet, protecting the land from desertification, becoming a home for several endangered species and taking in over 12 million tons of CO2 each year.
Corature believes fashion can be a force for good, and even donate a portion of their sales to The Rainforest Alliance. Plus, they’re 100% vegan!
Made from sustainable cork, this stylish tote bag is super lightweight to make your trips out of town, to the market or to the beach a real breeze. The strong design has been tested to hold heavy loads and even the logo is made from bamboo, making it 100% biodegradable when you’re done with it. Not only is this bag great for the environment (by supporting the maintenance of highly sustainable cork forests) it’s perfect for getting compliments as well as groceries!
