Gegen Meeresverschmutzung: Saltwater Brewery entwickelt essbare SixPack Bierdosenhalter / genaues Aufnahmedatum unbekannt ***
OPS:Turtle found with a plastic six pack ring around its body which preventedthe shell growing normally***
[Most plastic beer six?pack rings end up in our oceans and pose a serious threat to wildlife. But now a brewery has turned the rings into edible, biodegradable fish food and is hoping others will follow their lead .Florida based Saltwater Brewery worked with ad agency We Believers to design, test and prototype the first ever edible six pack rings.The six?pack packaging is made with by products of the beer making process.So instead of killing marine animals it feeds them. They are also 100% biodegradable and compostable. IF no animal nibbles at it, it simply dissolves, freeing any creature trapped inside.The company 3-D printed a test batch of 500 holders in April, and it plans to scale up production to meet its current output of 400,000 cans of beer a month. While the edible holders are more expensive to make, Saltwater Brewery wants set an example for other beer producers and encourage them to adopt the idea. They say if their edible holders become commonplace, they could potentially be as cheap as the regular plastic rings.A spokesman said last year Americans drank a total of 6.3 billion gallons of beer, 50 percent of it from cans.He added:” Most of the plastic from six packs ended up in the ocean.”The plastic can be ingested by fish and sea creatures or leave them entangled and vulnerable.Florida-based Saltwater Brewery was founded in December 2013 by a team of surfers and fishermen concerned about the environment.The company donates a portion of proceeds to ocean-related charities. ]
