Now it’s time for you to get thinking about recycling your own corks. There are a lot of projects out there that take advantage of wine corks, though a lot of them seem better suited to pristine corks or are for products that you’ll rarely need or use. Now a doormat, that’s something that we can all use, and you don’t need to worry about beautiful corks when they’re going to be underfoot. I’ve seen doormats produced from both corks on end, and those laid down horizontally. Personally I think those made with the corks arrayed vertically are both more attractive and more durable, with spaces between the corks that allow for water, dust and debris to drop out of sight.
