If ever you needed a reason to grab a beer and celebrate, this is it. But only if you grab a beer brewed by Saltwater Brewery, because they’re the guys 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!
