The rings are completely biodegradable, as resistant and efficient as plastic and made of barley and wheat ribbons, which makes them edible for marine animals that come in contact with them, CraftBeer.com reported.

“It’s a big investment for a small brewery created by fisherman, surfers and people that love the sea,” Peter Agardy, head of brand at the brewery, said in a promotional video

The rings are being marketed as the first of their kind and could help save wildlife.

“We hope to influence the big guys and hopefully inspire them to get on board,” company president Chris Gove said in the video. 

Saltwater Brewery had no comment beyond its statements in the video.
