Where to Recycle: Wine Corks

It’s April and we are honoring Mother Earth.   One sure fire way to start your organizing process is by eliminating excess.  Have you been stashing away all those extra corks from your favorite bottle of Merlot?  Maybe you have made a cork board with some or even a lovely centerpiece like the one above that Chelsea made from Two Twenty One .  If you’re crafty the options are endless for repurposing old wine corks.  But there may come a time when the corks just have no place to go.  You have used them in your decor enough and you don’t want your friends to start questioning your wine drinking habit…kidding!  It’s good to know that you can turn those old corks into something new.

One option is to send them off for recycling rather than just tossing them.  Yemm & Hart takes old corks and turns them in to durable flooring, wall treatments, and veneers.
