Safe – Made from sustainable, non-toxic materials. Natural grit cork, bound with a non-toxic water-based glue.
Responsible – Meringa Cork’s ambition is to expand and inspire the Australian community using cork products due to its unprecedented functionality, quality and application. Cork forests have an astonishing ability to absorb large amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere, and the process of harvesting cork material causes no deforestation.
Their cork is naturally sourced; has a high resistance, durability and lifespan; is biodegradable, and can provide an extensive variety of textures and colours. They also use eco-friendly adhesives, vegan materials and UV inks to ensure their products remain environmentally friendly.
Meringa Cork’s Portuguese suppliers minimize waste by ensuring leftover cork and off-cuts are repurposed into new and ecologically friendly products, such as the grit cork the brand bind together to make their natural cork yoga blocks.
Such a great prop! Solid, durable and very practical. Love this block! Sustainable, renewable and the perfect addition to every practice!
Surprisingly firm, this block gives a great foundation. I really like the weight and lack of give — great for support in balance poses plus nice and wide to be used flat too.
Practising with this natural cork yoga block has completely transformed my personal yoga practice. This beautiful round-edged block is quite a bit heavier than your average foam block, yet it leaves a much lighter environmental footprint. I love feeling that extra bit of weight in my hands as I transition through poses and place the block on my mat for support.
It’s hard to go wrong with a Yoga Block. I love cork blocks as they feel sturdy/stable which is so important in your practice when you’re looking for support from your prop. In addition, the cork blocks last forever.
