Cork is a great eco-friendly renewable resource, since the bark can be harvested without damaging the tree and has a rapid growth rate. It’s a great material for everything from flooring to sandals to this inventive Cork Trivet Ladder by Lavish & Lime. ($58) The individual slats can be twisted in innumerable shapes to fit any counter space or table, and will handily protect surfaces from hot pots & pans. So, the next time you throw a rager, rest assured your buffet table won’t get burned or scratched. Just your friends’ eardrums.
