I LOVE THIS NEW PRODUCT! You know how all of those plastic 6-pack rings get tangled in sea life – and cause major harm? Well, e6pr is a new company making these 6-pack rings out of rapidly biodegradable and non-harmful ingredients!






I saw a FB post about this new product that said:

Brewery Unveils 6-Pack Rings That Feed Sea Turtles Instead of Killing Them

(hmmm, not exactly true…)

I say it isn’t exactly true because I looked it up… The company exists (e6pr) and it is doing a great service to sea life, but they don’t claim to feed sea life, just not harm them while the product is biodegrading quickly – which is still a great idea in itself.

FROM THE WEBSITE:

6-pack rings that biodegrade in a short time and don’t harm wildlife.

A few different sizes

No more ‘harmful to wildlife’ plastic!

What the ‘bottom line’ people need to hear.

 

HOW THIS PRODUCT CAME TO BE

(from the website)

 

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS COSTS… BUT THESE BOTTLERS ARE USING IT.

I have no idea what it would cost to convert your manufacturing to this system, but you could ask them.

Here are companies already using the biodegradable rings.  Maybe support them!

YAY!  A GREAT IDEA!  I HOPE IT SUCCEEDS AND MANY LIKE IT.

ISN’T SHE PRETTY?! Meet Miss E.






I would love to have this young, mustang riding mare.

Isn’t she pretty?  Miss E.  A beautiful, 2014, ranch trained, mustang mare.  For me, I’d take this horse a million times… sure footed, goes happily where pointed, uphills, downhills…

For me, who loves to trail ride and off-road on my horse, these kinds of balanced, sure footed, been there/done that kind of horses are just my style.

Watch her video!  She does it all.  (And the ranch is gorgeous, too!)

WATCH MISS E’S VIDEO! – no affiliation but I wish I did!

I tried to lift stills from the video, but they aren’t as crisp and beautiful as in the video…it is always better to watch the video.  I swear, in the end when they are covering ground at the ranch, It looks like she has an amazingly comfortable, floaty, smooth trot, too!

CHECK OUT MONTGOMERY CREEK RANCH .

Montgomery Creek Ranch  is a (gorgeous) wild horse refuge that does a terrific job of patiently training, from start to finish, a few chosen mustangs a year.  They have a perfect training facility on their vast acreage – with no pressure.

They aren’t in the business of training mustangs.  They don’t need turnover or percentages.  But If they see an opportunity for a captive mustang to become a good citizen horse – they will give that horse the opportunity – however long it takes.

Now it is Miss E’s chance to get noticed.  I’d adopt her in a heartbeat.  Not just because she is pretty and looks great, but because I know she’s been trained completely and well.

 

If I had the powers, I would have as many captive mustangs beautifully trained – as possible.  I’d have a Mustang Registry and I’d create all kinds of new ways to be involved with your mustang… from liberty to trail walking to tricks… whatever they can do, I’d have a way to do it – and have fun while doing it.

I really feel that there is a horse out there for everyone – and there is any amount of things that one can do with their horse, other than the conventional showing.  Pick what you and your horse love to do, and just do it.

And it you happen to save a mustang, thank you.
