Hasbro, which has long been a proponent of environmental sustainability, has announced that in 2020, the company will begin phasing out the usage of plastic in its new product packaging. This includes not only shrink wrap, but items such as blister packs, elastic bands, and polybags.
The company is hoping that by the end of 2022, it will have eliminated all plastic in its packaging. Hasbro’s commitment to the environment is long-standing. The company began eliminating wire ties in 2010, adding recycling labels to its products in 2016, using plant-based PET in 2018, and beginning a toy-recycling program called TerraCycle recently.
