I’m a regular voice on Tom Idle’s awesome Better Business Show. Each week, we discuss the goings on in sustainable business.
That tricky problem of those six-pack rings on beer has been plaguing us for ages. Firms have already come up with solutions that are better for the environment, such as using recyclable plastic, but it still doesn’t help animals ingesting or getting stuck in them. Luckily, Florida-based Saltwater Brewing Co. may have come up with a solution – thanks to its new biodegradable and edible rings. Made from wheat and barley waste, they allegedly disintegrate in the ocean within about 3 months. That’s a mere one semester for ya.
Plus, Norway’s become the first country in the world to commit to zero deforestation (sweet), the cement industry is in a bit of a pickle, what with it being so carbon intensive and all (but there are alternatives) and we chat about M&S’ latest Plan A report.
