The problem was obvious. Think of all the soda & beer you have drank in your life (it’s okay if you can’t, most divers can’t count that high) and think of the number of 6-pack rings you have tossed away. A large number of these rings end up in the ocean, hurting or killing the marine life in some pretty cruel ways.
Starting with the Wheat & Barley by-products from the beer making process, Saltwater Brewing & WeBelievers were able to create a six pack ring that can effectively carry the beer while also being 100% edible, biodegradable and compostable.
They hope to have the new beer rings available on the market in 6-12 months, at which point you’ll be able to support marine wildlife by drinking more beer. Like we needed another excuse…
