As well as being a superb wine stopper, cork is a unique and versatile material. Cork was used by ancient civilisations for millennia, and we are now rediscovering its incredible properties.
It is light, impermeable, and used to produce everything from clothing to spacecrafts. Cork is harvested without cutting down any trees, which makes it a reliable and sustainable material. It is also reusable and recyclable.

I know a lot about cork before, but I glad to see the industry growing. I only worry about that if the demand growing there will be no enough land, as it’s can be produced in a very specific climate. Hope it’s not going in the way as tobacco/ banana/ cocoa/ avocado fields, to the hands of gangs…3 месяца назад

I have a black hat since 2008 and it survived mostly to the sun but also very good with rain. And don't take my sweat as the others and wasn't expensive (almost the same).3 месяца назад

Bamboo is an incredible natural material, but I would put both hemp and cork ahead of it for versatility, just for their insulation properties alone. Few things grow more quickly and easily than hemp. Cork is also virtually fireproof. Can you say that about bamboo?3 месяца назад

I will never look at a wine bottle cork the same. Even more so that, knowing that it is recyclable and being thrown away.3 месяца назад
@Kat. My son is 24, we are way past the “arts and crafts” phase. Although I do keep them for corking my home brew wine. I have a batch of apple wine that’ll be sufficiently mature in another month.Месяц назад
Whaaaat? Who throws that away? We always keep ours to kork up bottles for storage, to cut it into bits when we need sth. soft between components e.g. metal table leg" & "wooden floor". They can be great for crafting if there are kids around. They're fantastic for animal related crafting (if they are real n proper korks. There are sometimes fake korks in bottles that are white-ish and those kind of soak up grime which kork kind of doesn't in the same way!) Our neighbour loves to celebrate or have wine with friends on game nights. And she's not much of a crafter. Once we told her we use that stuff, she started to collect and give us hers. Finally more supply! So definitely let ppl around you know! 🤩Месяц назад

Its kind of lame when they want you to guess what the video is all about in the beginning when it's literally written right below the video and you clicked on a link because what it said it was about in the first place peeked your interest.3 месяца назад
Also, it’s “piqued your interest,” friend.3 месяца назад

You’re thinking about Quercus variabilis, the Asian Cork Oak, which is indeed native to India. Quercus suber, the Cork Oak shown in this video, is biologically native to the Iberian Peninsula. No one stole anything, there can be more than one species of a plant. Don’t be ignorant3 месяца назад
