Wine corks help Conservancy


With faculty making creative use of interoffice mail to band together for the environment, the staff at Scripps Research Institute is collecting their old wine corks to raise money for The Nature Conservancy.

The organization gets 2 cents for each cork that the institute collects and returns to a company called TerraCycle, which makes affordable, eco-friendly products from packaging waste.
