Eco innovation: Edible rings for six-packs
The rings are created from beer by-products during the brewing process such as barley and wheat and are completely safe for humans and fish to eat.
The rings are also 100 percent biodegradable and compostable, which just ups the product’s sustainability game.
The company says that the innovative design is as resistant and efficient as plastic packaging. The only drawback is that edible six-pack rings are more expensive to produce. But the company hopes that customers will be willing to pay a little more in order to help the environment and animal life.
“It’s a big investment for a small brewery created by fisherman, surfers and people that love the sea,” Peter Agardy, head of brand at Saltwater Brewery, said in the below video.
Saltwater Brewery hopes that other manufacturers will buy into the solution and invest in manufacturing it on a large scale to the benefit of the entire industry and marine conservation.
