IS IT ECOLOGICAL TO CONSUME CORK?
The cork industry promotes a non-contaminating economic activity that provides a natural, ecological, renewable, recyclable and biodegradable product to the world market. CORK is a guarantee for the future and survival of the cork oak forests and an example of sustainable economy. The production of cork does not produce any pollution or harm the ecosystem from which it is extracted, as it is obtained through debarking, without cutting down any trees. After extracting the cork, within a few hours, the natural cycle of the cork oak tree begins to regenerate its bark, the cork. The ecological value of the cork has been recognised by highly prestigious international organisations, such as the World Wildlife Fund WWF/Adena (www.wwf.es).
