About Original Cork Flip Flops
"We don't want to protect the environment, we want to create a world where the environment doesn't need protecting"
Original Cork flip flops uses cork, an environmental sustainable material which is 100% natural, recyclable and reusable. Original Cork flip flops is a patented model using cork composites combination.
Cork is a material which has been used for mankind for the last 5,000 years and it is a strategic material used for multiple applications, from wine bottles to aeronautics. In footwear applications, cork materials are ideal to the technical demands of the shoe industry and can be used in insoles, heels, sole and bottom fillers, mid soles, coverings, footbeds (moulded applications). For example, insole materials enhance the comfort of the foot by giving excellent shock absorption, cushioning, ground insulation and impermeability.
Cork is the outer bark of the cork oak tree, whose bark can regenerate after each harvest. Extraction of the bark of the cork oak tree does not require any tree to be felled. It’s even beneficial - because on average, each cork oak tree captures five times more carbon dioxide during the natural regeneration process than a cork oak tree which hasn’t been harvested.
The best thing for the environment is to use what nature has given us, respectfully. We are much better off using the resources the earth has given us: plants and other materials from the earth, in moderation. And we should also buy smart. Buy fairtrade, organic, and cruelty-free when you can.
