We have all see the horror pictures of marine life trapped in six-pack rings (if you haven’t click here). Personally, I don’t buy beer or cider that comes with six-pack rings – there are so many other fantastic beer ciders out there to drink that don’t come with the scary-plastic rings.
Saltwater Brewery has created edible six-pack rings, made from by-products of making beer that is 100% safe for animals to consume (that’s not to say that you should litter). Since they use the by-products of making beer, it is sustainable, and they had put a lot of work into creating a design that is strong enough to hold the six beer cans, as well as being environmentally friendly.
Most six-pack rings end up in the ocean, and their effects are detrimental to marine life. Great work by Saltwater Brewery, and hopefully the bigger companies take note, and start to use edible six-pack rings as well!
