Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino, in partnership with Recork, is launching a new initiative to recycle thousands of its natural, used wine corks. Beginning June 1, corks will be collected throughout the resort in an effort to help Recork with its recycling program. Sole, a leading manufacturer of footwear products, blends the recycled corks into unique formulations used in the production of its eco-friendly Flip sandals and packaging. With the Flips available for purchase at Tahoe Provisions, Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe will be the first venue to function as both a Recork collection site for natural corks and a retailer of the Sole Flips.
“We are excited to be a part of this innovative green initiative,” said David Lockard, director of food and beverage with Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe. “The simple act of recycling used corks, like many environmental efforts, is a small one but it can have incredible results. Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe is constantly striving towards increasingly sustainable practices, and partnering with Recork in collection, education and sale of recycled cork products is an additional achievement towards that goal.”
