South Florida brewery creates edible 6-pack rings

Delray Beach's Saltwater Brewery created ring to protect marine life


DELRAY BEACH, Fla. – A Florida brewery has come up with an idea that it hopes will not only help protect sea creatures, but also help feed them.

Saltwater Brewery designed what it calls edible six-pack rings.

In a Facebook post, the brewery wrote: "We believe most plastic beer six‐pack rings end up in our oceans and pose a serious threat to wildlife. 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 and are also biodegradable and compostable.

The Delray Beach brewery says it hopes the idea will influence other companies to do the same.
