During an evening, 2 childhood friends shared their story to bring out an extraordinary concept.

Julien fond of sailing, back from a sailing trip shared its concern about the ever-increasing presence of plastic waste into the sea.

It is by opening a bottle, the cork stopper in hand, that Stéphane, back from a trip to Portugal, told him about this extraordinary material that is cork.

From this discussion emerged the idea of designing cork buoys.
It will take us almost a year of study, testing and discussions with cork producers to finalize and patent our concept.

At the dawn of their 50th birthday, Julien, an engineer and Stéphane working in the production of eco-friendly textiles, decided to give a new direction to their professional life by bringing more meaning to their activity, for the future generations.
