Delray Beach’s famous beer spot, Saltwater Brewery, is making waves for their innovative new packaging that it hopes will lead to saving marine life. reports Saltwater has created a new six-pack ring that is both eco-friendly and edible. The new ring is biodegradable, as resistant and efficient as plastic, and is made of barley and wheat ribbons, which makes it edible for marine animals that come in contact with it.

“It’s a big investment for a small brewery created by fisherman, surfers and people that love the sea,” Peter Agardy, head of brand at the brewery, said in a promotional video. The ring is being marketed as the first of its kind and ould help with saving wildlife.

“We hope to influence the big guys and hopefully inspire them to get on board,” Chris Gove, president of the company, said in the video. Saltwater Brewery had no comment beyond its statements in the video.

The brewery had its Screamin’ Reels IPA named one of the best local beers by the Post last year and was featured on Esquire Network’s “Brew Dogs.”
