ReCORK Your Corks!

Drink wine and help Earth!

With more Americans spending time in Europe, studying abroad or just traveling, there's one thing they are bringing back with them, drinking wine. More and more people are spending their leisure time drinking a glass of wine when they come home from work or school instead of drinking beer.

I've seen a lot of people collect their wine corks to use as decor in a vase, but now those wine corks can be recycled and used to help the environment by planting trees and making environmentally friendly products.

ReCORK is a natural wine cork recycling program whose goal is to educate and inform wine drinkers and restaurants about the crucial role wine cork forests have on curbing climate change.

There are several drop-off locations and recycling partners involved in this, and you can get involved too!

Drink wine! ReCORK! Help Earth!
