We want your corks!

IMG_1595IMG_1593IMG_1592Over the past year,?Laurelhurst Cellars?has been looking?for ways that we can become better stewards. Although we are dedicated to a sustainable business model that includes improved recycling practices from grape skins and stems to bottles, for many years we have thrown out all the corks except for occassionally giving away handfulls to customers for craft projects.

window-decalWe are proud to announce that Laurelhurst Cellars has become a?partner in recycling with ReCORK by Amorim (previously ReCORK America) 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 plus?educate and inform our audiences about the crucial role cork forests play in curbing climate change.

Please help us by dropping off all of your natural cork wine closures at our Georgetown location.

About Recork

We are partners in recycling. 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.

Cork TreeNatural cork, the kind used in wine closures, is a perfect choice for recycling. It?s 100% natural, biodegradable and renewable. There is no reason natural wine corks should end up as garbage when recycled cork can become flooring tiles, building insulation, automotive gaskets, craft materials, soil conditioner and sports equipment. Because of a worldwide interest in sustainable agriculture and natural products like cork, an alliance of concerned businesses, individuals, and ecological organizations has been formed to address the opportunities to recycle natural cork closures.

ReCORK has already collected millions of used corks. The program is focused on obtaining used and surplus corks from individual consumers, retail and hospitality organizations, winery tasting rooms, bottling lines and quality assurance laboratories. Collection locations are being established with key retailers and restaurants all over North America. A list of current collection locations can be found here. Please note: only natural cork is being accepted. No plastic or metal closures will be accepted.

SOLE-ProductWithCork_002SOLE has successfully developed a unique cork blend that enhances the material properties of their footwear products, and replaces some of the petroleum-based material with natural cork, a sustainable alternative. These products launched with virgin cork in the Summer of 2010 and the target is to start using ReCORK recycled corks by the Spring of 2011.
