Recycle

Instructions

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

Alternatives

Opt for wine with a natural cork instead of plastic. You can also subscribe with local wineries from which you can buy wine in bulk and take back the bottles once you're done with them.

Facts

Glass can be continuously recycled, there is no loss of quality or purity in the process.
