Saltwater Brewery's Edible Six-Pack Rings
on 20 May 2016
Delray Beach, Florida's Saltwater Brewery has developed an edible packaging ring for its six-packs of beer. Constructed from recycled barley and wheat ribbons from the brewing process, the eco-friendly rings are 100% biodegradable so sea creatures can actually eat the rings instead of becoming entangled in them. They’re slightly more expensive to produce than their plastic counterparts, but Saltwater is hoping bigger breweries will buy into the new packaging so production costs will lower.
