This recycling program is part of a “Green” initiative to reduce energy usage and conserve our precious
resources. Through the simple act of cork recycling we can redirect some of the billions of natural corks that end up in the garbage each year, to new and exciting applications. This program is linked to a global initiative to save and protect the over 6 million acres of cork forests that dot the Mediterranean Basin, which are so vital to the local economies, support an ecosystem found only in the montado, and are key to the battle against global warming.
