We're stealing a great idea from The Kitchen, and hope that we can find an organization here in Chicago to donate used corks. For a couple of years, we've been donating corks to a friend of a friend who creates "cork art" (I'm not exactly sure what kind of art, but I seem to recall hearing about an Elvis pin...).
She's on break from corking now, so we're wondering if any AT: Chicago readers would be interested in joining us in both saving corks and figuring out a place to donate them.
Anyone know of a group that makes cork floors, ceiling tiles, or anything else? Let us know!
