Whole Foods is now accepting used wine corks, for a recycling program.
With more than 13 BILLION wine corks made annually, of which about 8 billion come to the U.S., of which about 99% are thrown into landfills, this is a great idea.
Factoid: Cork is harvested from the bark of a special oak tree species in Portugal. The cork is harvested sustainably--a tree can provide cork for wine corks, for many years, even decades.
So please take your used wine corks to Whole Foods. Maybe other sustainably-minded stores, such as New Seasons, will get into the act?
