Omg I have something to tell you, I JUST SAVED THE PLANET! Well, found another way to help at least! Corkful plant holders eliminate the need for plastic pots! *jaw to the floor*
Cork’s antimicrobial and water resistant so succulents and cacti thrive.
Designed by myself with a chunky rim. The hand-burnt mandala inspired by the plants themselves.
‘CORKFUL - Cork For Mindful Living' is a limited edition range. Designed by myself, I then worked with harvesters/manufacturers in Portugal to bring these products to life.
Cork's one of the most sustainable materials in the world. The bark/cork peeled away by skilled harvesters grows back after nine years. It absorbs CO2 in the process & 3-5 times more than non-harvested trees! I know right, cork is bloody brilliant.
Preserving these biodiversity hotspots (rather than clearing them for unsustainable practices) protects the endangered species that live there. Not to mention that harvesting & manufacturing cork is a high paid job supporting rural communities.
