Saltwater Brewery, in Delray Beach, Florida decided a couple of years ago
that they didn’t want their six-pack rings to kill any more marine animals.
But instead of just talking about it, they actually did something; made of
wheat and barley the rings either biodegrade or serve as a hearty treat for
wildlife!

The rings are the first of their kind.

Peter Agardy, head of the brand at the brewery, said, “It’s a big
investment for a small brewery created by fisherman, surfers, and people
that love the sea.”1

And
Chris Gove, president of Delray echoed that sentiment saying, “We hope to
influence the big guys and hopefully inspire them to get on board.”2
