Corks or Screw-Cap?…Which is better for Mother Earth?

From SF, an article that asks what’s Better for the environment: wine cork or screw-cap? (as if we didn’t have enough to think about)!

…the natural cork is the most eco-friendly option. Just be sure to turn in old corks to a program like ReCORK ( or throw them in the compost bin. Ease of recycling makes metal screw-tops a good alternative.
