Cheers! Saltwater Brewery has made a breakthrough in what could be a major step in saving wildlife. From birds to fish to turtles, six-pack rings have injured and killed all sorts of wildlife. Whether or not people mean to, our environment suffers awful consequences from our careless littering and pollution.
Edible six-pack rings is a small but innovative step in the right direction of living in harmony with nature, rather than conflicting with it. If other, larger breweries start following suit, there would be a lot less pollution. Americans drink 6.3 billion gallons of beer a year. That's a lot of six-pack rings, aluminum cans, glass bottles, and other pollution that can end up in the ocean. It's awesome to see a brewery like Saltwater finally trying to make a change.
While it does cost a little bit more to produce, Saltwater does hope that customers are willing to pay extra to help the environment. Millions of birds and marine animals are affected by plastic waste and pollution. A few extra cents may not mean much to you, but it could mean their life to them.
