WHAT IS CORK?
Cork is a completely natural material that can be found in nature. In fact, it comes from the bark of a cork tree... surprise! Most people are familiar with cork from its use as a stopper in wine bottles, however it is used to create a variety of products across multiple industries. Our newest cork game sets are just one example!
IS CORK ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY?
It is! Cork trees absorb large quantities of carbon dioxide from the air. The best part is that cork trees are never cut down during the harvesting of cork. That means a single cork oak can continue to purify the air for up to 300 years whilst also being used to produce cork products!
WHAT COUNTRY GROWS THE MOST CORK OAK TREES?
Portugal! Other than Portugal, the majority of natural cork comes from Mediterranean Europe and Northern Africa.
WHAT WAS CORK ORIGINALLY USED FOR?
A bottle stopper? Nope! Cork was actually first used to make fishing tackle!
IS CORK WATER RESISTANT?
Yes, cork is water resistant! You can throw it in the pool or spill your coffee on it and it will be totally fine! That's one of the reasons we picked it for our latest range of game sets. Because cork is lightweight and so easy to keep clean, it's the perfect, low maintenance material for everyday use!
Next time you are heading to the beach or the park, throw one of our cork board games in your bag. It's all of the fun with none of the hassle!
