Made from natural cork, this yoga block is the responsible choice for earth-conscious yoga lovers. Cork is derived from the bark of the cork oak tree. This oak tree develops a thick skin of cork every 9-12 years.
Once a decade these layers are stripped from the tree in a process that actually promotes the health of the tree. Harvesting the cork does not involve cutting or harming the tree in any way. The tree regrows its bark many times in its long life, which averages between 150 to 250 years.
This process is sustainable and renewable. Not only that, cork trees grow in forests that support diverse ecosystems and protect endangered species. This truly is a "win-win" situation for humanity and for nature.
