The Virgin Olive Market in the 801 N. Orange building downtown has partnered with the national company Recork to recycle used wine corks into sandals, shoes, and shoe inserts. The recycling effort keeps material out of our local landfill, extending its operating life. In addition to the wine corks generated by the restaurant, Virgin Olive patrons are invited to bring in their wine corks for recycle as well. The wine cork recycling was part of the Virgin Olive Market’s participation in the Orange County Pollution Prevention (P2) Program. The P2 Program helps businesses and other institution identify ways to save money on energy, water, and waste.
