These Edible Six-Pack Beer Rings Feed Marine Life Instead Of Harming Them

Spread the word

The plastic six-pack rings are often mistaken for food and have been found entangled around marine animals, even found in their stomachs, which has caused them to starve to death.

Scientists have warned us that the oceans may contain more plastic than fish in the year 2050. Now thanks to a Florida based company Saltwater Brewery, they have come up with a new innovative technology of biodegradable and edible beer packaging rings this could be the answer to eliminate some of our oceans’ plastic problems.

I’m sure most of you have seen shocking images of dolphins, fish, turtles, and seagulls, that have been entangled in the plastic beer rings.

Saltwater Brewery’s new biodegradable rings are produced from barley and wheat which is a by-product of the beer-making process and can be eaten or could simply dissolve.

Saltwater Brewery says they are just as tough as the traditional plastic rings but will cost a little more to make since it is a new design, but well worth it in the long run.
