Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 16, 2012
Cork board sheets are being used for a lot more than holding thumb tacks and many people are just now discovering how versatile and sustainable this material really is.
More than ever, the focus is on finding renewable resources that have a minimal impact on the environment. The cork used for cork boards, flooring and insulation is harvested from the bark of a particular type of tree.
Once it's harvested, the bark grows back and the tree returns to full health. Typically, once a tree reaches the right age, the fork is harvested every nine years.
Teachers, builders and households across the country rely on cork board for their daily work and routines.
"It turns out there's been a sustainable and very affordable material that can be used for a huge number of purposes right under our nose the whole time," said a spokesman for CorkBoardSheets.com. "There's still no better way to post notices around the office, keep your important documents in order, or give your kids something to decorate."
CorkBoardSheets.com is highlighting a variety of uses for cork boards, even providing instructions that detail how it can be used for flooring, interior design, bulletin boards and pin boards - to name just a few.
"We wanted to provide a resource for environmentally conscience and creative people looking for an affordable and sustainable way to tackle any number of household projects," CorkBoardSheets.com said. "This information will help anyone get started and find a great deal."
Unlike so many materials on the market, cork board is also hypoallergenic and fights mildew and mold without the need of treatments, making it a popular option to insulate rooms or use to create a luxurious base to lay flooring on top of.
