Our organization is dedicated to the protection and sustainability of the Mediterranean cork forests and the families, who for generations have farmed these forests.
Cork ReHarvest is the leading national recycling organization focused on recycling natural cork and educating the public about the vital importance that the Mediterranean cork forests have to the world''s ecological balance.
Cork ReHarvest partners with businesses, communities and governments to accelerate the adoption of sustainable practices.
We believe that teaching and promoting sustainability is the best way to systematically approach and solve the many complex environmental challenges facing society today.
Target demographics: Preserve and protect the cork forests
Direct beneficiaries per year: Recycle over 80 tons of natural cork, (aprox.17 million corks)
Geographic areas served: Mediterranean Basin, North America, U.K
Programs: Cork ReHarvest is a global, natural cork recycling program. Our goal is to remove some of the 13 billion natural wine corks from landfills and to recycle them. All of the cork we recieve is collected and transported with no carbon increase to the cork and all of the cork is recycled in North America.
I visited the cork forests of Spain with the CFCA this past summer. It was an incredible experience led by extremely passionate guides. I am now very cork conscious and only purchase wine sealed with natural cork.
Often, consumers don't realize the overall impact of how a small purchase can make a big difference in the life of the planet. For example, a bottle of wine closed with a natural cork is a better choice for the planet than one sealed with an aluminum screwcap or plastic plug. Every purchase matters and the CFCA illustrates this idea brilliantly.

Cork ReHarvest is a great non-profit that exemplifies the spirit and drive I wish all non-profits had. It's a worthy cause and one that not many are aware of. After one encounter with Cork ReHarvest I changed my habits when it comes to corks.
Thanks from Spain to Cork Forest Conservation Alliance.
