Write a review

Sleek, simple and sustainable handmade contemporary pot perfect as a desk tidy or craft tools holder.


šŸŖ“ Thanks to the versatility, lightweight and water repellent nature of cork the pot can also be used as planter for small houseplants or cuttings.Ā The pot can takeĀ 8cm and below nursery pots and its recommended that you wrap the inside of the cork pot with tin foil first.


Mind the Cork is a brand created by Jenny Espirito Santo. She creates fantastic, functional, eco-friendly, contemporary products using one ofĀ the worldā€™s most underrated material.

CorkĀ is a renewable material. Its collected by harvesting the trees bark so it does not require cutting down the cork oak trees andĀ harvestingĀ the bark does not harm the tree. Each time cork is harvested; cork bark regenerates itself and in doing so absorbs CO2. Harvested cork treesĀ can live between 100 and 300 years; as a result the use of cork helps maintain wildlife diversity and promotes new plantingĀ as demand for it increases.
