ReCORK America

by

ReCORK America is a recycling project of Amorim, a Portugese company and the world’s largest cork supplier. According to a spokesman for the company, the program has collected over four million corks to date…and counting. This week, they partnered with SOLE, a footwear company that will use the corks as a base for their shoes.

I am usually very skeptical of green business press releases, but I really like this idea. Cork is such a useful material. It’s such a shame that so much ends up in the trash. Californians can donate wine corks to the project at these locations.
