Running On Recycled Cork: 130 Million Wine Corks Collected

VANCOUVER, March 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leading sustainable running insole brand, SOLE, and its innovative cork recycling program, ReCORK™, are proud to announce a significant milestone in their joint efforts to create high-performance, carbon-negative insoles. The two groups have successfully diverted more than 130 million used natural wine corks from going to waste, a testament to the commitment of both organizations. The corks are being recycled in SOLE's latest piece of ultra sustainable running gear, the Performance Medium with Met Pad. This innovation in performance insoles is designed with targeted forefoot support to go the distance minimizing impact to athlete’s bodies, and to the environment.

The footbeds are engineered with a natural recycled cork supportive base, a sustainable and renewable material that is carbon-negative, biodegradable and compostable. The #" SOLE Performance Medium with Met Pad - Studio Image Credit: SOLE
