Bouchons d’Amour (“Corks of Love”)
Cork collection to fund materials for disabled children



Sponsors:

Bouchons d’Amour was founded in 2005, and today has 500 volunteers throughout France, collecting bottle corks nationwide for resale to recyclers, in order to buy materials for disabled people.


Terre Plurielle contributes €0.02 per cork for those collected at the Challenger and Bouygues Entreprises France-Europe sites. More than one and a half tonnes have been collected, amounting to €8,840. This sum will be spent by a crèche on the purchase of materials helping four children to be mobile.


The operation will be restarted next year – so don’t stop collecting those corks!
