A Delray Beach brewery says they have created the first ever turtle-friendly, edible six-pack ring for beers and beverages.
Saltwater Brewery says their Eco Six Pack Rings were first launched earlier this year. The eco-ringed beverages are available in South Florida stores including Publix, Total Wine, Whole Foods Market, Lucky’s Market and ABC Fine Wine and Spirits.
A YouTube video by We Believers shows how the Eco Six Pack Rings not only feed turtles — they also feed fish and other sea animals. The rings are made of barley and wheat, which make them edible and, also, strong enough to hold each can.
“Besides being 100 percent biodegradable, compostable and edible, they have to be strong enough to hold the weight and difficulty handling of the cans,” said Entelequia Inc. Chief engineer Francisco Garcia in the YouTube video.
Saltwater Brewery's Eco Six Pack Rings mark the first time a 100 percent biodegradable and edible packaging has been implemented in the beer industry.
