You have probably seen the disturbing images of marine animals that were damaged by plastic waste and six-pack rings in particular.
Remember that poor sea turtle who was trapped in a six-pack ring and had its shell growing around it for years, which gave her an odd peanut shape?
This is one of the millions of sad examples of what plastic pollution is doing to the marine ecosystems. According to the estimates, this pollution harms approximately 1 million ocean animals each year, including 100,000 sea turtles and marine mammals.
However, we still have a reason to hope for the better as there are people who want to do something about it and figure out the ways to help prevent and remove plastic pollution. Thus, Florida-based Saltwater Brewery together with ad agency We Believers has designed edible six-pack rings aimed to feed marine animals instead of strangling them.
