St Francis Brewing Company have been part of Ocean Pledge for some time now and are taking their pledge one step further in their effort to reduce use of plastic.

Says Lance “Linky & I are keen surfers and ocean lovers so the St Francis Brewing Co has been a member and pilot restaurant for Ocean Pledge for a few years now. This involves no plastic straws, mixers, take away containers, recycling and a worm farm for food waste. (www.oceanpledge.org).

Distributing our beer plastic free was the next challenge. We did some research and discovered a brewery in Florida that had developed a plant starch 6 pack ring (www.EPR6) made from the spent barley used in the brewing process. Cans are a growing trend in beer packaging, not only does the beer stay fresher, the cans transport with a lower carbon footprint and aluminium is almost infinitely recyclable.

Premium beer drinkers simply pour into a glass to enjoy. Beach Blonde will still be available in a bottle, these 6 packs are packaged in a compostable shrink wrap. We are stoked with our new cleaner, greener look and ask all to take up the Plastic Free July challenge. www.plasticfreejuly.org and join the Ocean Pledge movement.”
