Instructions

If the cork is natural material (i.e. looks like cork), compost it. Put plastic corks in the recycling bin.

Alternatives

Consider purchasing wine in bulk from local vineyards and wineries that have a take back and/or reuse program.

Facts

Natural cork comes from the bark of cork oak trees and is considered a sustainable material because it's renewable and trees don't need to be cut down to harvest. Cork trees actually absorb more CO2 after the bark is harvested!
