Recycle your corks at the Garden Café
The Chicago Botanic Garden has partnered with ReCORK to recycle wine corks from the Garden Café and Special Events.
Join the effort
Save your used, natural wine corks (no plastic or metal, please) and bring them to the Garden Café. Recycled cork can be used in flooring tiles, building insulation, craft materials, and sports equipment. ReCORK's recycling program also educates audiences about the role cork forests play in curbing climate change, and encourages companies to make more sustainable products.
