Yes. A Portuguese cork company called Amorim is working with the shoe company SOLE to turn old wine corks into footwear. Whole Foods stores are now collecting corks for the project, which is called ReCork. ReCork only focuses on shoes, but wine corks can also be made into things like fishing rod handles, bulletin boards, place mats, flooring tiles, and building materials. They can even be composted.
Check out Yemm & Hart Green Materials. This eco-friendly company started recycling wine and champagne corks in January 2004 and has successfully converted them into sustainable and useful products for consumers.
Here is another cool initiative called rewind your wine. http://www.rewindyourwine.com/about-cork-recycling.html
