Beer + Glue = A good time for all?
A first for beer… is Carlsberg’s new “Snap Pack” which bonds cans together with glue. And it’s not just some stupid gimmick – using glue instead of the plastic rings that hold cans together will reduce plastic waste by 1,200 tons per year. How does it make you feel that your drunk ass has been polluting the earth that badly?
Drink Carlsberg… to get drunk without destroying the planet. However, this will only be available in the United Kingdom and Europe, for now. But maybe everyone should adopt this was of packaging because, by 2050, the plastic in the ocean is predicted to triple. We assume there is already quite a bit in there now.
Following examples… from companies like Starbucks, Disney, and McDonald’s, all of who are planning to limit or stop using plastic straws altogether. Adidas has plans to use only recycled plastic by 2024 and Ikea will stop using single-use plastic products everywhere by 2020. High-five for environmental responsibility!
