The Wine Shoppe on Park
♻️ Did you know that corks can be recycled? Our Green Act Business Member The Wine Shoppe on Park in Peterborough, Ontario collects them for reuse!
🍾 Owners Sarah and Jennifer are BIG believers of creating more Green Acts at the shop.
🍾 One of their longest running #Green projects is their wine cork recycling program
🥂 Originally started back in 2006 by the Girl Guides of Ontario, businesses and other churches take in corks for recycling. A volunteer committee from our local Survivors Abreast chapter sort the corks.
🥂 Then, they take them to Jelinek Cork a cork recycling facility in Oakville.
Jelinek turns them into:
🍾 Cork boards, cork flooring and building supplies
🍾 Dock floats and more!
Here are some other Green Acts The Wine Shoppe on Park has implemented:
🍇 Their customers reuse all wine bottles over & over again
🍇 They’ve installed LED Lights
🍇 Unlike most stores in the wine industry, they do NOT use a bottle washing machine that wastes thousands of gallons of water every month
🍇 They are reducing their paper waste by offering to email customer receipts instead of printing on paper
🍇 They reuse plastic bubble wrap, and all non recyclable shrink wrap, plastic kit wrap and other packaging fillers that they receive in their incoming orders to cushion their outgoing shipments
🥂 Voted Peterborough’s Favourite Wine Making Place for 15 years, this is the place to discover how simple it is to make one of the hundreds of different wines offered.
🍾 Wines are expertly crafted in store & are ready to bottle between 4-8 weeks.
🍷 Customers select a wine & return to bottle it! Over 200 wines to choose from too!
🥂 Jennifer & Sarah invite you to come & discover the fun in wine-making!
Random Acts of Green App Users can also spend their Green Points for $5.00 off any batch of wine!
