Netting and Plastic – When It Is Not Disposed Of Properly – Death To Innocent Wildlife.

Breaking 16/7/17

SAV Comment – What fantastic news ! – biodegradable 6 pack can rings that breaks down in the water AND then can be used a food for turtles etc – Superb !

 

Now it is a case of getting the word out for others to follow this super approach to marine conservation.

 

A Brewery Has Created Biodegradable 6-Pack Rings That Will Feed Marine Life Instead Of Killing Them:

Most of these plastic six-pack rings end up in our oceans and pose a serious threat to wildlife. Together with Saltwater Brewery, a small craft beer brand in Florida whose primary target are surfers fishermen and people who love the sea, we decided to tackle the issue head on and make a statement for the whole beer industry to follow.

We ideated, designed, prototyped and manufactured Edible Six Pack Rings.

A six-pack packaging design that instead of killing animals, feeds them.

So think, and take the bloody stuff home with you.  Dispose of it correctly – Do not simply dump in the sea or on the beach !

Cut plastic can holders so they can never become trapped around the bodies of young turtles when out at sea, deforming them as they grow.   See some pictures below which shows what happens when they are NOT CUT in all places.

I was diving in the Malaysian’s water off Pulau Tioman. My buddy spotted this drift-net with a trapped turtle. After photographing it, we call all the other divers in to cut up the nets and disposed it when we get back on land. The net measured up to about 30m in length. Sad to say the turtle did not make it.
