Reply to "how do those synthetic corks fair compared to real cork?"

This is kind of related ... but in an off topic sort of way.

I was reading one magazine where they were talking about this very topic. They said that the environment is also a major concern in what type of cap to put on a bottle. Suprisingly, there is this whole ecosystem of cork trees that depends on cork harvesting for wine bottles. If we all went synthetic or screw-cap they believe that the area would be abandon by humans and ultimately die off.

I had never heard that argument for cork before.
