Guinness to Stop Using Plastics in Packaging

Guinness Beer is getting rid of plastic-ring packaging.

The company behind Guinness, Harp and Smithwick’s says it will also stop using shrink-wrap for beer multi-packs.

Instead, it is switching to 100% recyclable and biodegradable cardboard.

The sustainable beer packs are expected to first appear this August in Ireland.

The new packaging will be introduced in Britain and other markets summer 2020.

Plastic rings, which have been used for decades, pose a risk to wildlife and have been heavily linked to increased ocean pollution.
