Single use plastics are a known threat to our environment, generat- ing millions of tons of unnecessary waste every year that makes its way into our waters and breaks up into microplastics. These microplastics disrupt entire ecosystems and cause great harm to turtles, wildlife, sea birds, and the marine life that ingests them. Fishbone replaces single use plastics with paper-based can carriers that use significantly less material than full overwrap paperboard car- tons. Fishbone carriers are available for standard cans as well as Alu- mi-Tek bottles in both 4-pack and 6-pack formats and are sealed with a recyclable, compostable water-based barrier coating for moisture re- sistance. Fishbone can carriers come in a variety of options designed to complement any brand and to communicate the brand’s commitment to sustainability. Custom printing and graphics are also an option for unique branding opportunities on the carrier. The comprehensive Fishbone system also features semi-automat- ic and fully automatic equipment engineered specifically to apply the Fishbone carriers to a 6-pack of 12-ounce cans and to a 4-pack of ei- ther 12-ounce or 16-ounce cans. The BCF10 tabletop model runs up to 60 cans per minute and is available for a monthly user fee. The BCF40 high-speed model runs up to 240 cans per minute and is available for purchase. Bringing this system to market has been a collaboration between Fishbone Packaging, the innovators of the Fishbone carrier design, and Atlantic Packaging, the exclusive licensee of Fishbone Packaging. At- lantic will handle all aspects of the customer experience, from product ordering and delivery, to equipment sales and support. During a time when businesses are facing increasing pressure from environmental groups, consumers, and now governments to eliminate single use plastics, the Fishbone system is readily available for craft brewers and beverage producers who want to make the switch to a sustainable packaging option.
