Put A Cork In It

Cork

It seems odd that while cork itself is a very eco-friendly material, finding a place to recycle it is not as easy as one would think. Australia, Europe and Canada are all doing it, so why aren’t we?

Yemm and Hart Green Materials is the only place I have found in the U.S. where you can ship your corks to be recycled.

Or for you crafty individuals, consider making something out of your old corks.

So next time you have finished that bottle of organic wine, don’t toss just the bottle into the recycling — set aside that cork for a second life as well.
