Cork flooring is actually made from the bark of the cork oak tree, a species prevalent in the Mediterranean region. This is a 100% recyclable and sustainable resource as no tree is cut down to provide the source material. The honey-comb structure of cork itself gives it the ability to insulate against thermal and acoustic transfer. The waxy substance, Suberin, generated in cork protects it from liquids, bugs, mold and mildew. Go barefoot on a cork floor and feel the difference in terms of surface hardness/harshness and contact warmth. And when compared to the dust, dander and dirt that carpets collect, you’ll breath easier with cork as it doesn’t want them.
The most ‘green’ of flooring materials can withstand decades of use. The ultimate alternative when going ‘green’, cork provides without the loss of any trees. After harvesting only the bark, the cork oak tree regenerates and grows a new layer. Each tree is then reharvestable at ten year intervals. The cork oak tree has an estimated lifespan of 250+ years, so clearly it can out live you and I. So if you want a true ‘green’. Cork will get the job done.
