Here at Spec’s, we consider every day an opportunity to help Mother Nature. The Cork Project makes it easy—just bring in your corks (natural or synthetic) to any Spec’s and we’ll do the rest!
The Cork Project is a unique program with two simple goals: help save the Earth by reducing the number of items put into landfills and find a cure for cancer by raising money for research… one cork at a time.
Spec’s and long-standing partner Nomacorc, a leading producer of alternative wine closures, have made it their mission to recycle and “upcycle,” or repurpose, used wine corks through the appropriate channels in Texas. WidgetCo, a Houston-based recycler, ensures that the corks will be recycled properly and that every cork will find a future.
The funds generated from the recycled and upcycled corks are donated to the Ready or Not Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting awareness of and raising research dollars for pediatric brain cancer.
