Why is it sustainable? Cork is the renewable bark of the Cork Oak tree which is indigenous to the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal). Most cork forests are family managed and harvested using traditional methods, which allows the trees to live longer and helps preserve the natural landscapes of the areas where they grow. The bark harvested is every nine years and new growth renews and reaches maturity once again after nine years.
