recycling wine corks

August 5, 2007 at 12:00 am 4 comments

Recycling the wine bottle is great but take it one step further and recycle the wine corks. Yemm & Hart Ltd is collecting wine cork stoppers with the goal of converting them into a useful product – to extend the useful life of this natural resource for decades. Cork has already been found to be great soft flooring for school’s reading spaces. I’ll drink to that.

Mail all your corks to:

wine corks in old drug store drawerboxed corks to be recycled

I display my wine corks prior to shiping in an old drug store drawer I bought at a yard sale for $3. The slots are pefect size for the corks and is a pretty cool decoration in our office that I get lots of compliments on. Once the drawer is full I send the corks out.

    This is great to know! Sadly the world resource of cork is quickly deteriorating, which is why more & more wineries are switching to a plastic cork. This is a wonderful way to utilize this used cork! Thanks for sharing!

    […] and throw the cork. Once it gets full, I transfer all of them to a shipping box in the closet to be recycled. I save on all the walking back and forth. I could just stop drinking so much wine but what fun […]
