From reader Carrie H. in Los Angeles, CA ~ thanks, Carrie!
I was researching cork and what to do with used and – since you and your friends drink a lot of wine – decided to share. I’m especially intrigued by the knifeguard and dinner party placeholder ideas, along with the idea of adding ground cork to potting soil to help retain moisture.
There are also quite a few organizations that take used corks for re-use and recycling – and if you have friends who also have hundreds of corks to recycle, you can pile them all together “a communal cork bag” or barrel, I imagine you’d have enough for free shipping/pick up in no time. One organization even supports a charity!
A quick search reveals many more. Just me doing my small part toward reduce, re-use, recycle.
