Delray Beach brewery creates edible six-pack rings to help wildlife

Delray Beach brewery is hoping their Edible Six Pack Rings will help protect and feed creatures that often die struggling to escape from plastic rings on beer cans and coke bottles.

“Most plastic beer six pack rings end up in our oceans and pose a serious threat to wildlife,” the post on Saltwater Brewery’s Facebook page reads. “Together with We Believers, we ideated, designed, tested and prototyped the first ever Edible Six Pack Rings.”

The rings are made with byproducts of the beer making process, according to the Facebook post. In addition to being edible, they are biodegradable and compostable.

The brewery says they hope that their actions will influence other companies to do the same. The post has been shared more than 500 times so far.
