We’ve been promised biodegradable six-pack rings for years now, and yet, no such adoption has been set in place. Fortunately for us, SaltWater Brewery have put their best foot forward and are the first brewery to adopt these rings, and for that, I applaud them. The Eco Six-Pack Ring is comprised of wheat and barley and is fully compostable. Safe to digest, these nifty compostable six-pack rings are not harmful to aquatic life or wildlife.
Although the rings aren’t harmful, it is advised that they shouldn’t be consumed by humans. The company hopes to produce the six-pack rings with by-products of the brewing process – not only is this a nice touch, but it is also incredibly cool. The only concerns from E6PR are if they can produce enough six-pack rings to keep up with the market’s demand. Furthermore, with mass adoption just around the corner, it’s only a matter of time before we begin seeing them holding our Miller Lights together.
