Give Corks

It takes 43 years for a cork tree to yield its first wine cork - but just seconds to turn it into a throw-away item. Before 1990, discarded corks were destined for landfill. Approximately 550 tonnes of cork is imported into Australia annually, of which, still less than 5% is recycled.

Cork is natural, renewable, completely biodegradable and recyclable. By using recycled corks to manufacture other products, you are saving resources and minimising carbon emissions. Cork can be re-used to manufacture a range of natural, recycled products.

GiveNow has compiled the following register of places and organisations where you can donate your corks.
