Corona Beer Testing Plant-Based Biodegradable Rings For Cans

by | December 4, 2018

Global well-known company, Corona Beer is testing a new plant based ring for their cans, acknowledging that although the existing ones made out of plastic can be recycled, the rest of the plastic in the world hasn’t been recycled,  and for the world to help reduce the amount of plastic in the world. We need to stop contirbuting to its existence. 

The first cans will be tested in the brands native home of Mexico, with plans to bring it to the United Kingdom next year. 

“Our oceans are under attack. We are taking their life in rapid speed, destroying the chemistry that allows us to be here. Therefore we are bidding on the few who take the lead in true change. The ones who are shaping the future with us. Corona is such an Ocean Champion, a powerful ally in our war against marine plastic pollution — and in building the material revolution that will lead us beyond it. We share the goal of phasing plastic out for good, because we simply can’t afford its toxic impact anymore.”

“With roughly 8 million metric tons of plastic entering the ocean each year, there is a need to confront the issue on multiple fronts, which is why Corona has adopted Parley’s A.I.R. strategy to not only ‘avoid’ and ‘intercept’ plastic as much as possible, but also help ‘redesign’ solutions that use the material,” says Corona Beer.
