Craft brewery’s edible six pack rings

brewery_makes_edible_beer_rings-1Most plastic beer six‐pack rings end up in our oceans and pose a serious threat to wildlife. Saltwater Brewery together with WeBelievers has designed, tested and prototyped the first ever Edible Six Pack Rings, made with byproducts of the beer making process, that instead of killing animals, feeds them. They are also 100% biodegradable and compostable.

Plastic rings holding six packs of beer in place can cause serious problems if they end up in the sea, endangering marine life with possible strangulation as well as posing a serious threat to wildlife.

We Believers and Saltwater Brewery, a small craft beer brand in Florida whose primary targets are surfers fishermen and people who love the sea, decided to tackle the issue head on and make a statement for the whole beer industry to follow.

“Together with Saltwater Brewery we ideated, designed, prototyped and manufactured Edible Six Pack Rings. A six-pack packaging design that instead of killing animals, feeds them,” said We Believers in a statement.

These six-pack rings are made from beer by-products during the brewing process, such as barley and wheat, and are safe for human and animal consumption as well as being 100% biodegradable and compostable.

The creators believe that, while production costs are currently quite high, they can be reduced if other breweries start to use them. In the meantime, they feel that many environmentally conscious consumers won’t mind paying a little more for this innovation.
