Fourteen promising drinks inventions unveiled in 2018

Eco-friendly six pack rings


In January, Florida brewery SaltWater announced it was the first to use what it claims is “the first eco-friendly six-pack ring” made from by-product waste and other compostable materials, called E6PR.

According to E6PR™ when properly disposed of, the eco-friendly six-pack ring “finds its way to a compostable facility, where it will degrade in days, and when, unfortunately, left out in open land or a water system, it will degrade in a matter of weeks”.

It also states that the product is made from compostable organic materials, meaning that should it be ingested by wildlife, it will not cause harm.

E6PR has worked closely with Chris Gove of Saltwater Brewery and the Florida-based brewery is the company’s first client, now featuring the E6PR rings on its line of Screamin Reels IPA.

SaltWater Brewery was initially approached to trial an edible six-pack ring, but the edible element was abandoned due to possible contamination during the shipping process.

E6PR™(Eco Six-Pack Ring) was founded in 2017 after securing the backing of New York-based advertising agency We Believers, eco-friendly engineering company Entelequia and a group of private investors in the beverage packaging industry.
