    If we were really concerned about the environment and not either being duped or being narcissistic, we would be doing something different, maybe like the country south of the border re-using the same bottle over and over again.
    But it's about money unless you're a fool and think it's about the environment

    I used to salvage dive in my mid 20's ,I had a government contract to clean up under a public wharf , used for boats and public recreation , the crap i found was mind boggling evry thing from a dog tied to a brick, to about 4 dozen beer bottles , 1 dozen hard boiled eggs , tons of tools , 21 onz framming Hammers , many screw drivers , wrenches ,Knives lots of knived including a 12" arkensas tooth pick with rose wood handle, a 50.00 faralon divers mask , set of swim flippers, 10lb weight belt, diving knives , crab traps that were abandoned 1 doz beer unopened, about 75 feet of chain link fence , 2 45 gal oil drums. and a ton of plastic six pack retainers un cut , which i cut up with my diving knife and this was a small breakwater pier. still life continued , there was an 8' ling cod that came out of the break water and startled the begeezers out of me ,being in the same are for 3 months I got to see the life cycles of the dungeoness and rock crab , thansperent shrimp , and jelly fish , nudebranchs , and rock cod bullheads , star fish and sun stars sea urchins.

    the empty beer bottles I stacked up in little pyramids so the small fish and crabs could find shelter

    we impact the environment with out a second thought to our actions just by being us this is an interesting nat geo vid on the impact one person has

    Way too expensive to buy six packs. I always get at least 36 packs and put them in the fridge in the garage. Then just break down the box and put it in the recycle bin.

    They are more plastic, but are also recyclable. As someone else mentioned, the other ones also are a hazard for sea critters.

    So, when the thread was about the way that cans of beer are packaged, you thought it was about bottles? :D

    Show me the cans, all I saw were 6 packs, which are cardboard for bottles.

    Packaging nerd here. The company that introduced those offers more than 25 colors to match the colors of sexy micro brew cans. The 6 or 4 pack binder can match your can aesthetics to make the beer look cool at retail. They also offer fully automated in line systems that can create both 4 and 6 packs for under $40,000.

    I’ve proposed them (the equipment and material) to micro breweries in Milwaukee but I’ve never sold one. The company is based in Colorado.

    Add, they can have their generic or company printed can but easily have a sticker label for the particular small scale product being canned.

    My guess for the lack of more adoption in our area is the brewers (and now distillers) have a whole lot of competition. They also need a distributor making sure the product is seen among the many competitors.

    We had this figured out in the 1960s then moved on.

    Is 40K pretty cheap - relative to other systems? I hadn’t considered that aesthetics might be part of it, but those six-packs are pretty sexy - and they’re easy to spot in the cooler.

    It’s cost effective and lower in price than many other systems. A human being couldn’t keep up with the machine and a human being could develope wrist problems and a human being (with health insurance and benefits) would easily cost $50,000 per year per shift. If you run two shifts per day the cost justification is 5 months.

    I'd like to see them make bamboo holders for six packs.
    With little flutes built into the handle.

    I think the danger with the old ones is that the critters couldn’t see them. The clearish plastic would blend in better with the water etc than the newer more opaque less flexible ones.
