(Wikimedia Commons) (Newser) – C’mon, admit it: All those wine corks you’re saving, you’re not ever really going to get around to, like, cataloguing them or something. Fortunately, Whole Foods Market has your back. The upscale retailer will collect them for various outfits to repurpose—a cork floor-tile manufacturer, or recyclable cardboard shipping containers. Careful, though, Slashfood cautions: Only actual corks, not synthetics, can be dropped at Whole Foods.
