Endeavour Group trials cork recycling program

Endeavour Group’s ReCork natural cork stopper recycling pilot program has seen more than 600,000 corks collected from selected participating Dan Murphy’s and BWS stores.

‍The pilot program, which is part of a collaboration between Endeavour Group, Amorim Cork and Save Our Soles, aims to repurpose customers’ used corks with a view to create cork-composite anti-fatigue mats.

‍If the trial is successful, the mats will then be used by team members in selected stores when existing mats at point of sale need to be replaced.

“The unique attributes of cork-composite mats allow them to absorb shock and impact, effectively protecting any surface it comes into contact with,” says Endeavour Group.

“Based on the trial so far, it has been discovered that cork-based mats must be balanced with other recyclable materials to avoid collapse or disintegration.

“The trial has been welcomed by customers with many wine lovers taking the time to share their satisfaction with the initiative to wine merchants and team members in participating stores.”
