The cork oak tree is not destroyed when harvested, but rather the bark is trimmed from the tree every 9 years, leaving the tree and the forest undamaged. Cork flooring is actually made from the waste of the cork wine stopper manufacturing process. Cork provides natural thermal insulation and preserves energy and can reduce heating bills.
Cork also has a natural ability to absorb sound. It is naturally hypoallergenic and antistatic, so it suits allergy sufferers. Cork flooring has shock absorbing properties that appeal to the elderly or those that suffer from aching joints or back and bone issues. If you look at the benefits, cork offers a desirable alternative to common and more expensive household flooring.
