Parent-company Molson Coors announced Tuesday that six-packs of its Coors Light brand would no longer come in the infamous plastic rings that trap marine life, CNN reported.
Coors said it was the largest U.S. beer brand to make the change.
“We’re chill about a lot of things, but single-use plastic isn’t one of them,” Coors Light tweeted Tuesday.
“So we’re eliminating plastic rings from our packaging, starting this year and finishing by 2025.”.
The plastic rings used for soda and beer six packs have been controversial long before the current concern over ocean plastic pollution.
Coors is not the first major beer maker to jettison plastic rings.
Coors Light is the second best-selling U.S. beer brand after Bud Light. »
