Giving Programs

CLESIGN's mission is not just about making great, eco-friendly yoga products, but about giving back – to the earth and to the community.

Our Forests are Disappearing.We need your help to plant trees and restore forests around the globe. Donate today.

You buy a Mat or Towel we will plant a tree to donation has a direct impact on the earth and lives of the people who need it most. By helping us plant trees you give families the ability to transition from destructive farming techniques to a Forest Garden system that not only sustains and empowers them but changes their lives forever.

給予計畫

CLESIGN的使命不僅僅是製作優質的環保瑜伽產品,而重要的更是要回饋給地球和社區。
我們地球上的森林正在消失。這正是我們需要大家的的幫助,種植樹木並恢復全球各地的森林。
當你買一個墊子或毛巾,我們將種植一棵樹來捐贈直接影響地球和最需要的人的生活。

100% sustainable material

The cork used in our yoga products is a 100% renewable and recyclable material that is obtained through one of the most environmentally friendly harvesting methods in the world.
What is cork and where is it grown?
Cork is the outer bark of the Cork Oak Tree which grows in the Mediterranean area.  Cork trees are the only tree in the world that regenerates stripped bark. Approximately 6.6 million acres of cork forest extend across Portugal, Spain, Algeria, Morocco, Italy, Tunisia and France. These oak forests support one of the world's highest levels of forest biodiversity, second only to the Amazonian Rainforest.

Is cork an endangered natural resource?

No. The extraction of cork is a controlled process and does not required the cork oaks to be felled - on the contrary, it contributes to their regeneration. It is the cork industry which makes the continuity of the cork oak forest viable, by contributing to the maintenance of forests and the populations that depend on them. A recent estimate forecasts that only in Portugal, where there is the world's largest cork oak forest area, shall the harvestable cork be enough to meet market demand for the next 100 years.

What are the main characteristics of cork?

Lightness

Cork is a very light raw material, weighing just 0.16 grams per cubic centimetre, and can float.

Flexibility/compressibility
Each cork stopper is made up of around 800 million watertight cells. Among them is a gaseous mixture which allows it to be compressed to around half its thickness, without losing any flexibility, and to be decompressed and return to its original shape. This is what is called an elastic memory. Cork is the only solid which when compressed on one side, does not increase in volume on the other. This feature enables it to adapt to variations in temperature and pressure, without compromising its integrity as a stopper.


Impermeability
Thanks to the suberin and ceroids, it is practically impermeable to liquids and gases.
 

Decay resistant
Cork is highly resistant to moisture, and therefore to subsequent oxidation and decay.

Insulation
Cork is an excellent thermal, acoustic and vibration insulator. In relation to wine, the insulating properties of cork contribute to cork stoppers being the best protection against variations in temperature.

Biodegradable, recyclable and renewable
Cork is a natural raw material which is 100% biodegradable, recyclable and renewable. A recycled cork stopper is never used to manufacture a new stopper, but its recycling has endless uses, from materials for construction, fashion, sport, art, the aeronautics industry, among others.

PRODUCTION OF NATURAL RUBBER

Growing natural rubber involves many steps, and numerous scientific disciplines to be merged together to provide a cohesive operation and plan.

 

Planting: Seeds are planted and grow for between 12-18 months before being suitable for grafting, after which they are removed from a nursery environment and planted on a plantation. The bud quickly grows but the tree must be left to mature for between 6-7 years.

 

Tapping: Harvesters shave off a bit of bark, and then notch a line in the revealed bark to a depth of about 1/3” deep. The milky white liquid, latex, drips from the cut vessels and then flows down the barkless patch, where it is collected, typically in a cut mounted to the tree. This tapping continues on alternating days, with new patches being cut just below the prior one until the tapping is about a foot from the base of the tree. Once that side of the tree is tapped out, a repeat effort is done on the other side of the tree.

100%可持續材料

在我們的瑜伽產品中使用的軟木是通過世界上最環保的收穫方法之一獲得的100%可再生和可回收材料。
什麼是軟木,它生長在哪裡?
軟木是在地中海地區生長的軟木橡樹的外部樹皮。 軟木樹是世界上唯一再生脫皮樹皮的樹木。 大約660萬英畝的軟木森林遍及葡萄牙,西班牙,阿爾及利亞,摩洛哥,意大利,突尼斯和法國。 這些橡樹林是世界上最高水平的森林生物多樣性之一,僅次於亞馬遜熱帶雨林。

軟木是瀕危的自然資源嗎?

不是。軟木採收是一個嚴格監控的過程,不砍伐樹木。相反,採剝樹皮有利於樹木本身的再生。軟木業促進栓皮櫟林的可持續發展,有利於林區的生態維護和周邊居民的生活。一項最近的預測顯示,僅在全世界最大的栓皮櫟林區,葡萄牙,未來一百年內就有充足的軟木以滿足市場的需求。

軟木的主要特性有哪些?

質輕
軟木是非常輕的材料,每立方厘米僅0.16克,可浮於水。

具有彈性/可壓縮
每個軟木塞均由近8億個防水的細胞組成。細胞之間注滿了類似於空氣的混合氣體,可以在體積被壓縮一半時其彈力仍會毫髮無損,這個被稱為彈性記憶。軟木是唯一一種固體材料,可以壓縮一邊,而不增加另一邊的大小。這種特性也使軟木塞可以在不損壞其完整性的情況下,適應不同的溫度和壓力。

不滲透性
由於軟木內的軟木脂和蠟樣色素成分,軟木可有效阻隔液體和氣體的滲透。

耐腐
軟木具有高度的抗潮性,因此可以避免持續氧化和腐爛。

隔熱隔音材料
軟木是卓越的隔熱,隔音和防震材料。軟木有最好的隔絕性能,保護不受溫度變化影響。

可降解,可回收並可再生
軟木是一種純天然的原材料,百分百可降解,可回收並可再生。回收後的軟木塞不會再用於生產新的軟木塞,但是回收的軟木塞的用途是無止境的,有多種應用,例如,建築材料,時尚衣飾,運動用品,藝術品,航空工業等等。

Can cork be used to produce energy?

Yes. Cork dust can be used in the cogeneration of electricity, making a valuable contribution to improving energy efficiency. Amorim meets over 60% of its energy needs by using cork dust (biomass), which is a CO2 neutral source of energy.

Due to the lightness and acoustic and thermal insulation capacity of cork, it is also used in wind turbines.

軟木能生產能源嗎?

是的,軟木屑可以用於熱發電,有利於能源效率的提升。阿莫林通過使用軟木屑產生的能量(生物量)可滿足其本身的60%能量消耗,這是一種CO 2中性能源。

由於軟木質輕,有隔音隔熱的性能,軟木也被用於風力渦輪機。

天然橡膠生產

日益增長的天然橡膠涉及許多步驟,眾多科學學科融合在一起,提供凝聚力的運作和計劃。

種植:種植種子,生長12-18個月,然後適於嫁接,然後種植在苗圃環境中,種植在種植園。 芽快速生長,但樹木必須保持成熟6 - 7年。

攻絲:收割機刮掉一點樹皮,然後在露出的樹皮上劃一條深度約1/3“深的線條。 乳白色液體,膠乳從切割的容器中滴下,然後沿著無蓋貼片流下,在那裡被收集,通常在安裝到樹上的切割中。 這種攻絲在交替的日子裡繼續下去,新的補丁被切割剛好在之前的一個,直到攻絲距離樹的基地約一英尺。 一旦樹的一邊被挖出,樹的另一邊就會重複一遍。
