The YogurtNest is the non-electrical multifunctional eco-friendly yogurt maker made from natural, renewable materials, such as cork and textiles.
With a YogurtNest you can make your own dairy, non-dairy, greek style, drinking and flavoured yogurt for the rest of your life. It's also a slow cooker, a bread-leavening nest and a cooler/thermal container. You can use it at home, while travelling or camping or on vacation. It was made to last, to help you save money and our Planet and it´s beautiful.
It's chief material - cork - is the bark of the cork oak, a traditional material that works as an excellent thermal insulation. It's sustainably harvested from our cork oak savanna, every 9 years, without damaging the tree or its lifespan.
The cork oak tree is one of the main species of a very special ecosystem that can be found in Southern Portugal and Spain, called Montado (PT) or Dehesa (SP), which is a form of savanna, and where species like the Iberian Lynx, the most endangered big cat, can still be found. The cork production is the main reason this ecosystem still exists today.
Finally, it's also important for us that most of the purchasing (components) and contracting (manufacturing) takes place within a 50 Km radius around our HQ, so that money keeps circulating where it's needed. We estimate that the YogurtNest Community has already avoided around 6 million disposable yogurt plastic cups.
We are a small company owned by biologists/environmental activists and we also design other sustainable products for families and individuals that want to make a difference, reducing their carbon footprint. We were the first Portuguese 1% for the Planet member, for which we're very proud.
