Make one change…

Making one change in your life can mean so much, so I thought I would take the time to occasionally list a few easy ways you can give back! 

I ran across this program recently and am extremely excited about making the change to recycling my corks instead of tossing them!  And I’m starting tonight! 

Check it out:

ReCork by Amorim

ReCORK by Amorim (previously ReCORK America) is a natural wine cork recycling program. The ReCORK program is sponsored by Amorim of Portugal, the world’s largest producer of natural cork wine closures, SOLE, a leading manufacturer of footwear products, and Amorim’s U.S. sales affiliates – Amorim Cork America and Portocork America. The goal is to recycle corks and to educate and inform our audiences about
 the crucial role cork forests play in curbing climate change.

We can all make a difference. To make this program work we need your corks. We ask that you save your used, natural wine corks (no plastic or metal please) and deposit them at a collection location in your area, or send them directly to ReCORK. Your corks will be used to replace petroleum-based material in SOLE and other Re-Use Partners’ products and packaging, and extend the useful life of your wine corks. By taking part in ReCORK’s recycling program, you are helping with our tree planting initiative, spreading the word about the importance of the cork forests, and encouraging companies to make more sustainable products.

Everyone can also help by visiting 100% Cork and pledging to buy or sell only wine preserved with natural cork, and to encourage their family, friends, and local retailers to do the same.

Of course, there are no drop off locations in Monroe, LA, so you would have to mail them in.  The good news is that for 15lbs of cork they will send you a postage paid sticker to use! 

Like I said…I’m starting tonight! 

When will you start?
