The plastic rings that keep beer cans together are notorious for being harmful to the environment, so these Corona six-pack rings have been created to offer an eco-friendly alternative.
Crafted in partnership with Parley for the Oceans, the rings are made from plant-based fibers that are completely biodegradable and sourced from waste and other compostable materials. The rings are intended to simply break down after disposal to prevent them from lingering around and releasing micro-plastics into the environment which can happen with traditional beer packaging rings.
Speaking on the new packaging initiative, Corona Better World Director, Evan Ellman, explained, "The beach is an important part of Corona’s DNA and we have been working with Parley to address the issue on the frontlines where plastic is physically accumulating. We also recognize the influence a global brand like Corona can have on the industry, and with the support of Parley, are pursuing scalable solutions like plastic-free six-pack rings that can become a new standard to avoid plastic for good."
