Toy giant Hasbro will begin phasing out plastic packaging in its products from next year, with the aim of virtually eliminating it from new product packaging by 2022.
Polybags, elastic bands, shrink wrap, window sheets, and blister packs are all in the firing line across product ranges such as Nerf, My Little Pony, Monopoly, Magic: the Gathering, and Power Rangers, according to Brian Goldner, chairman and CEO of Hasbro.
“Removing plastic from our packaging is the latest advancement in our more than decade-long journey to create a more sustainable future for our business and our world.
“We have an experienced, cross-functional team in place to manage the complexity of this undertaking and will look to actively engage employees, customers, and partners as we continue to innovate and drive progress as a leader in sustainability,” he said.
