Green Products

100% natural, renewable, recyclable and reusable

The increase in the global population has placed unprecedented pressure on the world's finite resources and has fostered a new awareness for the need to minimise the impacts created by companies. Greater efficiency in the use of resources is critical in order to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and reduce the environmental impact of human activities on the planet. Cork, as a 100% natural, renewable, recyclable and reusable product, is an excellent alternative in its own right to reduce global dependence on non-renewable products.
