edible beer topsA brewery created by fishermen, surfers and lovers of the sea have come up with a genius solution to end plastic 6-pack rings ending up in the ocean.

Their solution? Edible rings. (For the fish, of course)

It is estimated that by 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. (that's insane.) These brilliant thinkers decided they would help put an end to this by creating edible rings instead of plastic, the fish can therefore eat them instead of getting stuck in them.

This material is made entirely of barley and wheat remains from the brewing process, all of which is 100 percent biodegradable and safe for fish, turtles, birds and other marine life to eat, unlike the plastic ring-holders that are now killing them by the millions.
