Edible Ring binders for Beer cans could save Marine Life
Brewery bosses have come up with a novel idea to cut the appalling toll that discarded plastic is taking on sea life: edible ring binders for beer cans. The binders, which hold cans together, are currently among the most destructive waste dropped into our oceans because they are often mistaken for jellyfish and swallowed by larger fish, while smaller fish and birds can easily become tangled in their loops.
But the new binders, devised by the Saltwater Brewery in Florida, are made using by-products from the brewing process and can be eaten by marine animals.
