Half of the world's cork wine stoppers come from Portugal's cork oak trees. These trees are so important to the country's ecosystem and economy, they're protected under Portuguese law. We went inside the forests of Alentejo to see how the cork bark is carefully harvested every nine years so it doesn't hurt the trees. This footage was filmed in 2019, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

You know, corkwood is a great insulating and construction material. Home Depot would sell tons of it. Siding, sound proofing, decorating, the number of uses is infinite. So why doesn’t Home Depot sell corkwood? Because Georgia Pacific cuts down native forests. And they Washington D.C. to keep corkwood out of Home Depot.

Dear person, genuine repentance and recitation of those words will protect you from Coronavirus: "Falun Dafa is Good! Truth, Compassion, Forbearance is Good!" Falun Dafa is a spiritual self cultivation practice of mind and body that improves both health and morality. It is based on Universal principles of Truth, Compassion, Forbearance. Since 1999 Falun Dafa practitioners are facing the most brutal persecution in the history of mankind at the hands of the Chinese communist party.

National Sunday Law, Read On-line "New Revolution" and the " New Civil War" going on in our nation. Most people don't have a clue who's behind it all.

I always wondered where cork came from. Now I know. I wonder if cork stoppers are recyclable. We always dispose of stoppers when we open wine bottles but if the stoppers can be recycled perhaps we could collect them and have them recycled for the sake of the trees they come from.
