Recycling Natural Cork

A number of people around the world enjoy drinking wine. Each time a bottle of wine is opened, a cork is added to the pile of waste collected in the house. The amount of cork waste generated in houses is lesser when compared to the number of corks from hotels, restaurants, and wine tasting rooms finding their way to the garbage bin. Fortunately, corks are eco-friendly products that can be easily recycled and reused. They are hundred percent biodegradable and are derived from the bark of cork oak trees. The trees are not cut down but the bark is harvested by hand, making them completely environment friendly.
