Over the years, I’ve tried to reduce my plastic consumption by using refillable bottles and bringing my own bags to the grocery story.
In 2019, Mattel announced a goal of achieving 100% recycled, recyclable, or bio-based plastic materials in all its products and packaging by 2030.
In the United States, Mattel will work in-house to recover the materials in these toys and use them to create new products.
, France, and Germany, where Mattel has launched similar programs, the company will work with third-party recyclers, such as Terracycle.
The company hasn’t specified what percentage of plastic it will ultimately turn back into toys.
Materials that can’t be turned into products will either be downcycled or incinerated to create energy.
Downcycling means creating other plastic products of lower functionality or quality (like a park bench) that can’t be recycled again, meaning that it will still end up in a landfill at the end of its life cycle.
If the company is able to build out this recycling infrastructure, it will potentially be able to infinitely recycle old toys into new ones, creating a circular system that doesn’t require extracting new resources and further harming the planet.
