Six pack rings used to hold together canned drinks have long been a symbol for how our plastic consumption harms wildlife. We’ve all seen images of animals trapped in the plastic rings. People cut open the rings but animals still die as a result of ingesting the material.
One brewery in America has found a solution: an edible alternative! Their version of the six pack ring is strong enough to withstand the weight and handling of a six pack, fully biodegradable, and even edible. Furthermore, the packaging is made from waste products of the brewing process. Making use of waste and solving a huge environmental issue. How long will it take for the rest of the worlds canned drinks companies to catch up?
