Via The Daily Loaf: One less item to throw in the garbage: Local ABC Wine and Spirits stores are collecting wine corks to keep them out of the landfills.

With the Save the Corks program, ABC is teaming up with Nomacorc to upcycle and recycle the corks through TerraCycle. Natural and synthetic wine corks are accepted. In addition, for every cork turned in, 2 cents is then contributed to charities.  In one month alone, ABC raised over $750 for charity.

Do your part: Drink and be merry, then drop your corks off to your local ABC Wine and Spirits store.
