Saltwater Brewery Creates Wildlife-Safe Six Pack Rings – Cheers to Innovators

The devastating impacts of plastics on aquatic wildlife and birds cannot be understated.  We’ve covered the controversy here at Conservefewell a number of times here and here.  Nearly 30 years ago, I recall visiting a landfill just outside of Blue Hill, Maine, where I found several seagulls hopelessly entwined in plastic six-pack holders, wasting away unable to eat or fly.  Over the years, evidence of the impacts of plastics on sea life has continued to mount.  This is not a knock on plastics, as plastics have improved the lives of humans immensely; rather, it is a great story about human innovation and compassion.  Kudos to the Saltwater Brewery and this brilliant idea.
