World Centric Announces New 4-Can Fiber Carrier Rings, 100% Compostable Alternative to Traditional Polyethylene Plastic
World Centric has announced today its new compostable 4-can fiber carrier rings. The company’s new Fiber Can Rings are made exclusively from annually renewable plant fibers instead of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or low-density polyethylene (LDPE), which are commonly used with beer, soda, and other cans, and are harmful to both the environment and wildlife.
The new Fiber Can Rings provide a plant-based, compostable alternative that does not require petroleum, helps reduce carbon footprint, and keeps additional microplastics out of our oceans, forests, and landfills.
Made from sugarcane and bamboo, which are both annually renewable resources, the new World Centric can ring also limit the use of timber materials in an effort to protect forests and indigenous communities whose livelihoods depend on these forests. World Centric’s Fiber 4-Can Carrier Rings give food and beverage service companies a more environmentally conscious way to deliver canned products. They are designed to compost within 2 to 4 months in a commercial composting facility.
“Flexible can rings are still commonly made from plastics despite public concerns about their harm to wildlife, and most people aren’t aware that plastic can rings are not always recyclable,” said Mark Stephany, World Centric Senior Vice President of Sales. “Beverage can ring contribute to the overwhelming problem of plastic waste that ends up in our oceans annually. Our fiber can ring are part of the solution.”
