An E6PR pack

E6PR

They hold beer cans together and don’t contribute to plastic pollution. The E6PR, aka Eco Six Pack Ring, could replace the pretzel when it comes to beer pairing, since it’s also edible.

The manufacturer doesn’t advise that. The rings don’t taste great and are best disposed of in a compost pile. But they are better than traditional plastic rings that can pile up in oceans, ensaring sea life, or turn into microplastics that end up in fish stomachs.

“I’m unaware of any other 100% biodegradable and compostable six pack ring before E6PR,” says Ricardo Mulás, the company’s chief financial officer.

E6PR (Eco Six Pack Ring) was established in 2017 and is headquartered in Mexico. The rings have racked up a dozen awards since then, in categories from environmental packaging and design to public relations. This year, the rings started holding together cans from Corona in Tulum, Mexico.

The company was founded by We Believers, Entelequia and a group of investors in the beverage packaging industry.

The rings were launched in 2018 by Florida’s Saltwater Brewery, which challenged other breweries to adopt them. Since then, craft brewers in Australia, South Africa, Poland, Scotland and the Solomon Islands have reportedly signed on. That’s in addition to a handful of U.S. brewers in Connecticut, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Washington that use the E6PR.

Recycle the cans and compost the rings

E6PR isn’t the only eco friendly alternative to plastic rings. Danish brewery Carlsburg introduced a Snap Pack in September that glues cans together. E6PR holds them together with rings made from wheat and barley.

“The innovation behind our can ring is the redesign of packaging, manufactured with natural fibers which are biodegradable and compostable,” Mulás explains, “where if discarded properly it will make its way to a compost facility and compost or if incorrectly thrown into the wilderness it will biodegrade.”

As for replacing the pretzel: “The eco rings are manufactured with natural fibers, so when it comes out of production one can take a bite out of it,” he added. “I have. It has no taste and has no nutritious value.”

So eating them is not encouraged. Neither is throwing them in the wilderness to feed wildlife.

“It’s not food,” the CFO says. “Proper disposal should be in the compost or organic bin where it should find its way to a compost facility and compost or if thrown in the trash and ends up in a landfill it should biodegrade.”

You can expect to see more of the eco rings holding together cans in the U.S. “Many breweries have decided to adopt our rings and have a smaller footprint on our precious planet. We are in contact with several other companies who want to do the same,” Mulás says.
