The company, based in Delray Beach, Florida, is responsible for creating 100% biodegradable six-pack rings that will feed marine animals rather than harm them if it ends up in the ocean. The rings are made of material consisting of barley and wheat left over from the brewing process.

In their video, Saltwater Brewery provided some alarming statistics. Americans alone drank 6.3 billion gallons of beer last year, which most typically was contained in cans. A majority of the plastic rings encasing those cans make their way to the ocean.
A million seabirds and countless other marine creatures are affected by the plastic. Sea turtles get caught in the plastic rings and develop deformities, and seabirds ingest plastic that never leave their systems.
As a result countless marine animal lives will be saved and people can definitely Support That.
Are the mysterious mass die-offs in the Pacific ocean going stop, or are all the sea creatures just going to eventually go extinct?
