Edible Six-Pack Rings Invented To Save Sea Creatures

Saltwater Brewery is the company behind this brilliant new idea.

They’ve managed to develop six-pack rings that are 100% biodegradable. That’s pretty cool already, but the best part is that they’re also totally edible! According to the video below, Americans drank 6.3 billion gallons of beer last year, and 50% of that was from cans. Most of the plastic six-pack rings used end up in the ocean where they pose a devastating threat to marine life and birds. So the craft beer company from Delray Beach, Florida decided to ‘re-invent the loop’ by making their six-pack rings not only safe for wildlife but delicious as well! They’re made from beer by-products like barley and wheat and even humans can snack on them while relaxing with a cold one (although we wouldn’t recommend it). We’ll drink to that!

The rings are expensive to produce but hopefully people will pay a little more to help protect marine life.

The brand also believes manufacturing costs will go down if other breweries adopt the idea.

“We hope to influence the big guys,” says Chris Goves, Saltwater Brewery’s president. We’ll drink to that!
