Your Wine Corks are recyclable. Just take them to Whole Foods on Federal Highway – there is a collection bin in the wine section of the store! and cannot go in your trash can! Whole Foods has a GREEN MISSION and cork recycling is part of that mission. Whole Foods Market has partnered with Cork ReHarvest in a cork recycling program so that shoppers can recycle their natural wine corks. Recycling helps to reduce demand placed on cork plantations while maintaining the delicate ecosystem of the Mediterranean forests and helps thousands of producers to maintain  a sustainable income to support their families.
