Love what they do to support the cork industry in the US and Portugal. Sustainable resources remain alive and useful with organizations such as this.
Cork - a renewable resource, a better choice for the environment, and has many uses. It's more than just a bottle stopper, although it does a very good job at that.
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 Forest dedication to cork oak forest conservation is amazing. The impact by promoting a sustainable life and preserving the ecosystem surrounding the cork forests is of the most importance.
Cork Forest Conservation Alliance performs a crucial role for the cork oak forest conservation.
They give an outstanding contribution to the promotion of the cork oak forest. Their enthusiasm is inspiring!
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.
Your non-profit labour promotes multiple and related environmental benefits than can be sustained by a traditional and technologically advanced industry in the mediterranean countries ( than provides solutions and benefits mainly to the wine industry and its consumers)
I knew Cork Reharvest two years ago when his manager visited us here in Spain. I live in a small village which focuses its life on using the resources that we can pick up from Cork Forest, specially the cork. I was surprised how this NPO is worried with our problems, despite they are so far from here, and what big effort they are doing in order to show our places and nature.
I first learned about the Cork Forest Conservation Alliance and Cork ReHarvest at a Wine Grape Growers Meeting. The presentation was interesting, enlightening, and very appropriate for a group growing grapes and making/selling wine. It dispelled many myths about "better" closures for wine bottles. It was so interesting, I thought it would be worthwhile for the members of my Rotary Club to also hear it. I was surprised at how many club members also found the presentation extremely interesting and educational. If you want to learn more about the world's second largest ecosystem and you can help preserve it, I highly recommend a visit to the website - http://www.corkforest.org
This organization is performing a very enviable task and bringing to light a topic that is overdue for discussion. I am very pleased that they exist and fully support their initiatives.
We found out about this recycling effort after we were contacted by our local Whole Foods and asked to spread the word. This is a very admirable project, particularly in its focus on saving these important bio-diverse forests.
We have posted about this to our readers and will continue to reach out to educate and inform as we connect with a lot of wine lovers through The Growing Vine, a project to promote New England vineyards and agriculture.
Thank you Cork Forest Conservation Alliance!
We were challenged by the general manager of our hotel to come up with green initiaves. Our engineering dept had managed to get a check from the Nevada Water ppl for over $40 K by remodeling all the landscaping. It took me a while, but I love wine and researched cork recyling and found cork reharvest to be the right group and the perfect fit for Mesa Grill at Caesars Palace. All 8 Harrahs properties now partake in this program and use While Foods, one of the partners as a drop zone for the corks.
