There are some times when business and nature can get along, a good example is the cork industry. Did you know that cork oak forests help stave off desertification, and become sanctuaries for a plethora of animal life, including endangered species?
Well, cork has many uses in all types of industries, even in the fashion industry. It is a hardy material that has wood-like qualities that people are drawn to, and it has a uniquely warm appeal. You can see this in stylish fashion products made by the company Corature.
Cork bi-fold wallets, cork fabric tote bags, and cork purses are beautiful examples of some ways this renewable resource is utilized. The best thing about harvesting cork is that no trees are cut down, only the cork bark is removed.
With that said, it’s not wonder that many people today who are concerned where the products they buy come from choose cork products.
Located in North Carolina, USA, Corature is a company that cares about the environment and donates a portion of sales to the preservation of forests. If you want to do your part in preserving the forests, then ‘cork-it’ next time you purchase a purse or wallet.
