Simon has spent the last four years working on an environmentally friendly six-pack holder, known in the industry as hi-cones or yokes, to replace the plastic rings we are used to seeing he has invented bio-degradable / edible rings made from barley and wheat that marine life can eat. He plans to call his invention WheatMe and use it as part of his trademark.
Although it takes time, Simon manages to convince a number of beer manufacturers to start using his WheatMe holder for their six packs and consumer reaction is very positive. Sadly, after a year in the shops one of the companies is being sued by a local couple because their young child who is allergic to gluten chewed on the pack and had a serious allergic reaction.
At the same time Simon hears that there is another hi-cone on the market with a very similar design to his, but while biodegradable (they degrade in 200 days) are not edible.
