Qurkies | About Qurkies

Qurkies are made of a waste stream from the cork bottle stoppers industry. So yes, Qurkies are made of cork. Cork is a super susainable material. It is a real CO2 sponge and it's very easy to recycle.

Qurkies are invented by Ruud van den Heijkant. A Dutch product designer and a father of two. “When I first became a father, I was seriously astonished by the amount of plastic used on toys. Plastic has an ecologic footprint of a dinosaur. So not something you want to give to your kids. I wanted to take an iconic example of a plastic toy and turn that into something natural.” The idea for Qurkies was born. After that, Qurkies was successfully funded on Kickstarter in March 2018.

“Product design is about concessions, we need to stop making every time concessions on our environment. Ecologic sense is not only expressed in the Qurkies blocks, but also in our packaging. We minimize material and avoid plastic. Our energy comes from solar panels and we deliver packages by bike.“ In 2019, Qurkies was selected and certified by the Solar Impulse Foundation as 1of1000 beautiful sustainable product initiatives.
