Help needed from Local Businesses to gather More Corks
Bothy Vineyard has found a way of making corks work harder. Besides using corks to stopper their own wines, this local vineyard is now collecting its used corks and passing them onto Recorked UK, a cork-recycling programme that then donates a penny for every cork collected to a local wildlife charity.
Bothy Vineyard is Oxfordshire’s official collection point, having sent over 7000 corks to Recorked UK. There is a huge UK demand for this wonderful natural material, which is not currently being met. The White Hart at Fyfield, Cherwell Boathouse and the Oxford Wine Company are just some businesses that have agreed to give their old corks to this cause. Can your business do the same?
Please contact Sian Liwicki at Bothy Vineyard, by ringing 01865 390067 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Bothy Vineyard has always placed a huge emphasis on sustainable practices – recycling, re-using, energy conservation and wildlife protection. However this is the first time that a real opportunity has arisen to save corks from landfill.
