Absolutely NOT. We totally busted this myth a while ago when our product was featured on the hit television show ‘MythBusters’. Over the years we’ve invested a lot of time, resources and research to prove that our six pack rings are by far one of the most environmentally friendly choices for beverage multi-packaging. Our ring products are highly photodegradable, which allows our rings to disintegrate in sunlight in just about 1 month.
