Brewery Debuts Six-Pack Rings That Turn Into Turtle Food Instead Of Endangering Them
Brilliant idea turns six-pack rings into sea turtle’s friend instead of foe
Six-pack rings started with such a simple mission–to keep six cans of a beverage together.
I seriously doubt whomever invented the plastic version had any sinister motives involved.
Yet, as the world’s oceans have become overrun with plastic and garbage, those simple rings have become a serious hazard to sea life.
Now, a brewery in Florida has invested in coming up with a better way.
The rings are made of wheat and barley. Craftbeer.com reports the rings are 100 percent biodegradable, compostable and plastic-free.
Saltwater Brewery has been working on the concept for a few years. Customers are starting to see them on stores in South Florida.
Chris Gove is the co-founder and president of the brewery. He tells CraftBeer.com, “Together, we can all be advocates for a clean and safe environment. Our goal is to transition all of the packaging in our facility to this six-pack ring alternative that goes beyond recycling and strives to achieve zero waste.”
