Recork BoxRecycle your natural corks at Double Oak. Bring your used corks to Double Oak to be recycled. Recycling cork is one of Double Oak's sustainable, nature-friendly best practices. Double Oak is pleased to be using corks as bottle stoppers for many reasons, the most important being that it is the best bottle closure for the wine itself.  Cork is biodegradable, renewable, energy efficient, sustainable and 100% natural. Once collected, the recycled wine corks are sent to ReCork, a large cork recycler, where they are ground down and repurposed for use in new consumer products. For more information visit
