From Green Right Now Reports

You’re already drinking organic or organically grown wine. And you’ve got a blue bin for glass recycling in the garage. What more can you do to carbon neutralize your wine habit? Take that cork and save it for recycling. Maybe store up a few until you’ve got a bag full and ready to turn in.

Then take the bag along on your next visit to Whole Foods Market, where you can pitch the leftover cork into a collection bin provided by Cork ReHarvest.
