Cork. The renewable plastic alternative.
The humble cork. It has been around since the 1600s, first used as a bottle stopper by Dom Pérignon for his famous champagne.
It’s now widely used as a stopper for bottles, as flooring, wall coverings, you’ll even find it in cricket balls.
Cork is the bark that is harvested from cork oak trees, a completely renewable and sustainable process that does not damage the tree.
Pure cork is also compostable. You can just chop it into smaller pieces and throw into your compost or throw into your garden as mulch.
It’s only fitting that we have used a disc of cork as an alternative to a PE plastic liner in the lids for our High Glow Highlighter Mousse. It does a great job of making sure the aluminium lids are completely airtight and that all our packaging remains completely plastic free.
