This eco-friendly, durable cork yoga wedge is a perfect tool for additional support during transitions and poses. Cork offers a natural, environmentally friendly alternative to the chemically-made foam wedges. Cork is a sustainable and renewable resource. It is harvested from the bark of the Cork Oak and does not harm the tree, nor does it require any toxic chemicals during harvesting or manufacturing. Yoga wedges made from cork offer a natural, warm, and soft textured look and feel. The texture provides extra traction, and the fact that cork is a slightly porous material, it creates a non-slip surface for both your hands and the flooring, even for sweaty palms.
