  • Can cork stoppers be recycled?

    Yes. Being a 100% natural product, cork stoppers are biodegradable and do not pollute the atmosphere if they are thrown in the rubbish bin. However, they are completely recyclable and reusable. Although recycled cork shall never be used in stoppers again, it can be used in coverings, insulation, memo boards, high competition kayaks, badminton rackets, tennis and cricket balls, car and aircraft components, design and fashion items and a multitude of other uses.

  • What is stripping?

    Stripping is the ancient process of extracting the bark of the cork oak - the cork. This work is done by specialised professionals, with absolute precision, who use just a single tool: the axe.

    This delicate operation takes place between May and August, when the tree is at its most active time of growth and it is easier to remove the bark from the trunk. Harvesting cork is the world’s best paid seasonal agricultural job.
