Re-Corking


Very cool idea. ReCORK is a cork recycling company. Sponsored by the Portuguese company
Amorim the worlds largest producer of wine corks. I'm not sure they have a spot in NYC, but I hop ethey will soon!

Here's a blurb from their site:

This recycling program is part of a “Green” initiative to reduce energy usage and conserve our precious resources. Through the simple act of cork recycling we can redirect some of the billions of natural corks that end up in the garbage each year to new and exciting applications. This program is linked to a global initiative to save and protect over 6 million acres of cork forests that dot the Mediterranean Basin. These forests are not only vital to the local economies, they represent an ecosystem that is only found in the montado, and are key in the battle against global warming.
