Cuvaison Estate Wines Kicks Off National Cork Recycling Program at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen
Thousands of corks now going to good use - not land fills!
And more are on their way.
"Thanks to the overwhelmingly positive response from 'the Classic' we know we're on to something special," said Cuvaison President
All of the corks collected will be shipped to Yemm & Hart, a recycling company that converts cork into self-sustaining products. Natural cork is 100 percent recyclable and can be turned into useful everyday products such as flooring tile, building insulation, shoe soles, fishing rod handles, bulletin boards and even soil conditioners.
Schuppert and Cuvaison Winemaker Steve Rogstad will be attending many of the top food and wine events throughout the year to collect corks and continue educating the public and industry about cork recycling and its benefits. Custom-designed recycling boxes produced by Cuvaison will be placed throughout each event. Key restaurants are also lending their support by displaying the Cuvaison recycling boxes and collecting natural corks.
"At Cuvaison we're concerned about climate change and we feel compelled to do what we can to reduce the winery's impact on our environment," said Schuppert. "Going solar and being certified Napa Green are the most visual and obvious initiatives, but that's just a start. We continue to look into the little but significant ways of creating change within our own organization and through grassroots networks with our staff, families and friends."
