“Marine scientists and environmentalists say an estimated one million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals are killed each year by six-pack rings and other plastic material they mistake for food.”
Luckily, Federal law in the United States requires these types of plastic rings to be photo-degradable. It’s been illegal to distribute non photo-degradable rings in the US since 1994.
So that’s some too-rare good news. Still, cut ’em before you trash ’em.
