Plastic six-pack rings have long been notorious for polluting our natural environments and becoming easily entangled around wildlife that unintentionally come in contact with them. Unfortunately, this type of entanglement can have permanent, disfiguring, debilitating and even fatal consequences. However, there are simple solutions everyone has the ability to take part in!
- Cut each ring of plastic before discarding to prevent birds and other animals from becoming entangled. This preventative step takes only a few seconds and could save the lives of innocent creatures that may come into contact with it in the future.
- Avoid purchasing drinks that utilize plastic ring holders.
- Look for products that use edible rings to contain their six-packs. While this is a relatively new invention, these rings are becoming more widely distributed as public awareness increases.
