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.

    I have a patented drinks accessory design that I need to set before the eyes of people familiar with the drinks industry. I am a retired Forex trader and have no knowledge of the drinks industry apart from enjoying a pint or two of lager. A business amateur I admit, but as an ex- trader I do recognise a good thing when I see it . Our survey indicates a 80/85 approval rating by social drinkers for this innovation. There are millions of people globally ready to use the product of this design, and my challenge is finding a way of getting it to them. Hit the 3 lines top left and take a look at the “brochure” on the website…all will be revealed.

    I was worried about the marine wildlife when I saw the plastic rings. I really wanted to be a part of saving Marine wildlife. So I decided to Buy a Photodegradable Six pack rings applicator and I got it with the help of my friend. With the help of this machine I’m able to reduce the harmful plastic usage.
