75% of the world's cork may be lost within the next ten years, so reports WWF as more and more wines are now using screw-tops and synthetic cork.

Cork traditionally sourced from the Mediterranean is a regenerative harvest, that asside from providing numerous jobs, also maintains many forests of trees that equally protects much wildlife.

So I'll be doing my part this weekend by consuming large volumes of corked swigging.

Just a small comment...the portuguese pavillion on the Expo Hannover had an entire facade made of cork (Alvaro Siza and Souto Moura). I believe that the spanish pavillion was also made of cork. Check that out!
