So we have cork – lots of it! Today, Portugal is responsible for about 50% of the world’s cork production.That’s a lot of wine bottles!
But cork can do a lot more besides protecting your bottled wine. This material can be used in musical instruments, footwear, baseballs, cricket balls and Australian cork hats! Actually, NASA has been using cork for some type of rocket insulation… thing!
Scientist or not you can now also buy bags, purses, umbrellas and many other things made with cork.
