Recycled cork: 130 million wine corks collected for running insole brand

Footbeds with a natural recycled cork supportive base is a significant milestone announced by the sustainable running insole brand, SOLE, and its innovative cork recycling programme, ReCORKā„¢ in 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 organisations. The corks are being recycled in SOLE’s latest piece of ultra sustainable running gear, the Performance Medium with Met Pad.

Recycled cork has natural elasticity for shock absorption

This recycled cork innovation in performance insoles is designed with targeted forefoot support to go the distance minimising 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 ReCORK programme collects and recycles used wine corks into forward-thinking products with the help of over 3,500 eco-conscious collection partners across the continent.

Cork’s natural elasticity makes for excellent shock absorption while custom-molding to each person’s unique feet. The result is a sophisticated footbed with a remarkable carbon-negative environmental footprint of -2.28kg CO2e, meaning it removes more carbon from the atmosphere than it adds.
