Breaking the plastic cycle 

Towards a new world made of sustainable materials

Mission statement

The main aim of Corkinvogue is to contribute to the world’s transition from plastic to sustainable materials such as cork, rubber, wood, and recycled plastic.

We believe that each everyday object can be rebuilt using these raw materials, an idea that will make a huge difference in the future of our planet.

To address the global plastic crisis, we need to think and act both globally and locally. It is no coincidence that Portugal is the world’s largest cork producing country and Portuguese industry is increasingly focused on recycling.

Based on this vast experience and accumulated knowledge, Corkinvogue creates sustainable solutions – products made of recycled materials and beautifully designed.

As world citizens, we are aware of and concerned about the destruction of natural resources. Our focus is to recycle materials, transform them, and make the recycling cycle infinite.

We conceive and design high quality products, offering sustainable and environmentally friendly materials, with a sophisticated and fashionable look.

We pride ourselves of our Made in Portugal tag and we work together with others small and medium size Portuguese companies.

And of course, our products are 100% made in Portugal.

From 3 R´s to Circular Economy

Are you familiar with the 3 R’s principle?

The simple and brilliant idea of reducing, reusing, and recycling is one of our core beliefs.

The concept of sustainability for us is more than a mere marketing word – all the raw materials we are using will be recycled and most of them are being (re)used for the second or third time.

Cork, rubber, wood and even plastic are being constantly recycled and reused for new purposes. 


Circular Economy

The circular economy keeps resources — such as products, materials, and energy — in the economic system for as long as possible and at the “highest value” possible.

Products gain value as they’re manufactured, through the input of materials, labour and energy. Finding ways to reuse a product keeps much of that value. Recycling a product captures less value, because it requires energy and some materials break down in the recycling process.

Pursuing a circular economy first requires changing the way we think about products (Steps 1 and 2 in the graphic), by changing product design and production. Businesses need to think less about increasing revenues by selling more product, and more about selling longer-life and higher-quality products.

Once products are in use, the priority becomes reusing them, then repairing or remanufacturing them, and then recycling.

Circularity means that instead of materials moving from resource extraction to production to waste, the waste becomes feedstock for new products. Resources are recovered and reused and waste is reduced.

Mainly known for its artisanal savoir-faire and normally associated with wine bottle stoppers, the cork industry has been expanding its range of products in the last 10 years. However, a lot of work still needs to be done to explore the full potential of this wonderful raw material and to combine it with the power of automated production.

That is precisely what we, together with our partners, aim to do – helping to grow and mature the cork industry 2.0.

The whole process – idea, design and production – is being developed by our team and the final product always reflects our vision for the future: eco-friendly products, design sophistication and high-quality standards.

From Portugal to any part of the world.
