Here is green option for all you wine enthusiasts: you no longer have to throw your natural or synthetic corks in the trash. Instead, mail them to Trenton, NJ-based TerraCycle Inc., which turns them into new products. I learned about this company via the blog, 365 Days of Trash.
The company tells you how many stamps are needed to mail corks: for up to 10 corks use two stamps; up to 30 corks use four stamps. Address your mailing bag or envelope to: TerraCycle Cork Brigade, 121 New York Ave., Trenton, NJ 08638.
