Recycling of Cork Stoppers in France reverts to the fight against cancer

In the framework of the Ecobouchon recycling programme, Amorim Cork France collected 46 tons of cork stoppers.

In the framework of the Ecobouchon recycling programme, Amorim Cork France collected 46 tons of cork stoppers, which were recycled and converted into a donation of €20,000 to the French anti-cancer association, Agir Cancer Gironde. Also in this framework, a cork panel was created in the Place Jean Jaures in Lyon, measuring 9m high and 7m in diameter, using 285,000 wine corks, listed in the Guinness World Records. As a result of the various recycling programmes in different countries, Corticeira Amorim has donated thousands of euros to civil society – in particular institutions involved in the fight against cancer and those that support persons with disabilities, as well as environmental protection institutions.
