Why is cork sustainable?Updated 4 months ago

Cork is an excellent example of sustainability under both of these definitions. Cork bark comprises three layers; the outermost and middle layers are harvested numerous times over the tree's life, regrowing following each harvest. Because the inner layer is not removed, the tree's protective layer is preserved, allowing the tree to continue to thrive. Learn more about cork's sustainability here.
