#ONEarth Basics: What makes Cork a sustainable alternative to plastic?
Plastic takes over 1000 years to decompose - ergo, every plastic product ever thrown away is still there on the planet somewhere, choking landfills or oceans. And there are about 8 billion people out there.
Cork production is considered sustainable because only the bark of the tree is stripped to harvest the cork. The tree continues to live and grow. Besides, to produce 1000 cork wine-stoppers, 1.5 kg CO2 are emitted, compared to 14 kg of CO2 in plastic stoppers and 37 kg CO2 in aluminium screw caps.

The mat is good with nice grip. However, the product is not completely made of cork. The base is made of EVA material. And the upper layer is made of cork.
The cork yoga mat has been a wonderful addition to my workout gear. My workouts tend to be rigorous and I require a mat that can withstand that. I now finally have the mat that wouldn't shift or move or fold in during my workouts, thereby eliminating the need of repeated alignment. Thank you!
