This Edible Six-Pack Ring Can Potentially Save A Lot of Marine Animals

Now we can all enjoy beer with a little less guilt.

We all know plastic can be extremely harmful to marine life.

Just this year, we’ve heard about that heartbreaking news of how some dead sperm whales in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany were found to have had consumed plastic debris and car parts.

There’s also that report about an almost-dead sea turtle in La Paz, Mexico which, according to its rescuers, ate a plastic bag that blocked its digestive tract.

In an ideal world, we can all hope everyone learned from these tragic incidents, recycled plastic, and stopped throwing garbage in the ocean. Still, the truth of the matter is that we aren’t making much of a progress in addressing plastic pollution.

Fortunately, though, some people are taking initiative towards addressing this pressing problem – such as Saltwater Brewery.

Saltwater Brewery’s beer six-pack rings are 100% biodegradable and edible – a big win for marine life.

This company from Delray Beach, Florida in the United States has created environment-friendly six-pack rings for their beer. Besides, their rings are completely biodegradable and – wait for it – 100% edible.

So yes, in case Saltwater Brewery’s six-pack rings end up at the bottom of the ocean, there’s really nothing to worry about because they are safe for sperm whales, sea turtles, fishes and every other sea creature.

Fortunately, the company has expressed its willingness to share the amazing technology with other breweries and drink-makers.

This may look like a small victory for now but at least we’re coming up with good solutions like this. Kudos to Saltwater Brewery for that! Let’s all cross our fingers that more companies would follow their example soon since they’ve said they’re willing to share the technology with others.

As for their beer products, their official website tells us they use “only pure and natural ingredients” for their “hand-crafted beer.”

14-Year-Old RecMed CEO Turns Down $30 Million Offer For His Invention

This young CEO means business and his achievements are quite telling.

Sometimes, we should really learn how to say 'no' and take it from this adorable 14-year-old schoolboy who won't let anything or anyone take his dreams or ideas away, not even with a whopping amount of money involved.

Taylor Rosenthal from Opelika, Alabama recently turned his brilliant idea into reality by developing a vending machine that dispenses first aid kits. It started out as a school project from his Young Entrepreneurs Academy class where he initially thought of first-aid pop-ups. Later on, though, the witty youngster opted to use vending machines instead.

"Every time I'd travel for a baseball tournament in Alabama, I'd notice that kids would get hurt and parents couldn’t find a band aid. I wanted to solve that," he told CNN Money.

Mars, also known as ‘The Red Planet’, has become one of the most interesting planets (apart from Earth of course) in the solar system. You’ve most probably heard or read in news reports of the different experimentations and discoveries that astronauts and scientists do at Mars.

But what exactly have the scientists discovered apart from the fact that we share the same 24 hours to a day, and that it also has predictable weather patterns? We have yet to find out if it can also sustain life and its history. So far, these are what we know of Mars:
