Natural & 100% recyclable
The cork used for our B Balanced Ball is responsibly harvested without damaging the host tree, the Cork Oak tree, which can live for up to 200 years and be harvested 15 to 18 times owing to the species' unique ability to quickly self-regenerate. The Cork Oak forest - or “montado” - from which we source is a national heritage site in Portugal and has been legally protected for hundreds of years. This rich ecosystem is home to a diverse variety of animal and plant species, contributes to carbon fixation, and the montados play a vital role in soil conservation and protection important for combating desertification.
Cork is a naturally sourced, renewable material and it is both recyclable and biodegradable.
Naturally anti-microbial, cork is odour-resistant and makes a suitable non-slip surface for physical practice.
Cork is harvested from the bark of the tree, stripped away by hand and does not require the tree to be cut down.
