Started in 1905, The National Audubon Society is one of the oldest of such organizations in the world and uses science, education and grassroots advocacy to advance its conservation mission.

What can I do to directly help support cork forests?
The best thing you can do support cork forests is to not just buy 42 Birds products, but to choose all cork products whenever possible. There is a common misconception that there is a cork shortage. The amazing thing is that there is a reverse climate change effect with cork -- the more you buy, the more you save. The biggest threat to cork when people stop using it in exchange for cheaper, non natural materials.
If you are interested in recycling your cork products, you can find a dropbox by you from our partners at Cork Forest Alliance.
