Why Roll?

When we exercise, microscopic tears occur within our muscles. This is healthy and expected, and it is in healing these tears that our muscles grow and develop. However, for healing to occur, we require the proper recovery routine – rest, diet and active muscle massage (self-myofasical release).

If muscles do not recover properly post-workout, scar tissue can develop within the muscle and result in tightness. In extreme cases, this scar tissue can grab hold of bone structure, causing significant pain and reduced performance. Shin splints are a common example.

Why Cork?

Exercise recovery rollers are traditionally made out of PVC plastic and EVA foam. Both PVC and EVA are derived from crude oil and are extremely difficult to recycle. Chances are, 99% of foam rollers end up in landfill.

Cork on the other hand is 100% natural and 100% biodegradable. The process of harvesting cork is in fact regenerative. Stripped cork trees actually absorb 5 times more CO2!

The majority of the world's cork is grown in Portugal and is used for wine corks. Sadly, large volumes of wine corks are being replaced with plastic alternatives, significantly reducing the global demand for cork. There is a need for new products to utilise cork - that’s where we come in!
