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

29 Jan / 2015

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.
