Somewhere I found a website that said that if I had 200 or more corks they would reimburse me for shipping, but I cannot find the website any more. I have over 200 corks for recycling, but do not have a whole foods. Please advise. Thnx Sue

I must show thanks to the writer for bailing me out of this particular condition. Just after looking out through the the web and getting ideas which were not helpful, I thought my entire life was well over. Being alive without the approaches to the difficulties you've resolved through your good article is a serious case, as well as those that would have negatively damaged my career if I had not come across the blog. That natural talent and kindness in dealing with all the details was helpful. I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't come across such a subject like this. I'm able to now look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for this expert and amazing guide. I will not hesitate to propose your web page to any individual who needs to have guidance on this situation.

@Maryanne Very cool! Your store should be happy to share the corks with you. I have reached out to the Princeton store and asked them to contact you. Have fun with that craft project and post back pictures when you're done!

I would like to know if I would be able to purchase about 300 of these corks for a crafting project I am doing. These are the first corks I have come across. I was in your Princeton store yesterday and saw the salvage box, these are just what I would like to have. I look forward to your answer. Thank you for checking this out for me.

"Starting today, Whole Foods Market partners with Cork ReHarvest to make it easy for wine enthusiasts to properly dispose of cork at all of our 292 stores in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom." Congratulations on the excellent initiative! The idea of cork recycling is great specially now that we are experiencing climate change due to a growing population and continued garbage generation. Some people may think what a single cork can do to help save the environment, well nothing much but if you collect them together by the thousands it will be huge. Take care!

Our church collects them and takes them to Whole Foods to recycle. Great program!

Is WF still doing this? My store in Abington didn't have a box last time we were there...?

@CAROLYN - Were you able to ask the store if they are still recycling corks but maybe don't have a box any longer? I know that my local store has moved to more of a large glass vase for recycling corks. I wasn't able to find a store in the city of Abington as I was going to find out for you. If you want to reach out to your local store, ask the Guest Services desk as they should know if the program is still happening. Find their info at http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/list.

This is very interesting. Will definitely share this to my students so they'll appreciate the value of cork.

I'm happy to hear about this program. Question...what do you do with the artificial "corks" that you receive? Do you sort the corks, or are they sorted elsewhere? If they are sorted elsewhere, do you know what happens to the artificial ones? I'd like to share information about Cork ReHarvest with fellow employees (sort of a "Did You Know?" thing), so I'd like to be well-informed. I see more and more artificial corks, so I'm wondering what, if anything can be done with those. Thank you!!

@TINA - It will vary between stores whether the corks are sorted at the store or once they are sent in. I believe the plastic corks are thrown away. Before putting together the info, you can reach out to the Cork Reharvest project directly at http://www.corkforest.org/contact_us.php.

I am collecting corks for my wedding center pieces ....do you think whole foods would allow me to take courts from the recycle program? Ill after the wedding I will have no use for them and would put them back into the recycle bins!

@LINDSAY - I would suggest reaching out to your local store. They might work with you to help gather some and then recycle later!
