Cork Forest Conservation Alliance

Pop a Cork: Save a Tree

To meet our goals, we work with businesses, communities, colleges and government agencies to help support our efforts to save this remarkable natural resource.

The Cork Forest Conservation Alliance campaigns globally for the protection and preservation of the Mediterranean cork forests, its inhabitants and biodiversity, through education, direct action, and partnerships with communities, businesses and governments.

We believe that teaching and promoting sustainability is the best way to systematically approach and solve the many complex environmental challenges facing society today.

Founded in 2008, Cork ReHarvest has led the cork recycling movement in the US and Canada, helping to collect and recycle some of the 13 billion natural corks that are produced each year. Equally important is its work to educate the public about the Mediterranean cork forests. Due to the scope of our organization’s expanding efforts focused on cork forest conservation, we have recently changed our name from Cork ReHarvest to the Cork Forest Conservation Alliance (CFCA). We will continue to use Cork ReHarvest as the name of our global cork recycling program.

These forests contain one of the world’s highest levels of forest biodiversity, including endemic plants and endangered species such as the Iberian Lynx, the Iberian Imperial Eagle and the Barbary Deer. They are also a vital source of income for thousands of family farmers, who for generations have worked these forests. It is our calling and our passion to protect the Mediterranean cork forests, not as a relic of the past, but as an integral part of our planet’s biosphere.

To meet our goals, we work with businesses, communities, colleges and government agencies to help support our efforts to save this remarkable natural resource.
