Did you know that cork can absorb 55 times its own weight in carbon from the atmosphere? Join us for an interview with Paul Maughan-Brown, content manager for the wine cork recycling program ReCORK and it’s parent company Canadian orthopedic footwear brand SOLE.

ReCORK, North America’s largest natural wine cork recycling program was launched in 2008 by Canadian footwear company SOLE. ReCORK is an alliance of businesses and individuals who work together to collect and repurpose natural wine corks. The corks are used to innovate and create natural, sustainable alternatives to petroleum-based foams and plastics so common in the footwear industry. ReCORK has generated a truly innovative supply chain solution, collected more than 110 million corks for recycling, and planted over 8000 cork oak trees. And they’re just getting started!
