Products and the Environment
For years Hasbro has been hard at work to reduce the environmental impacts of our products and packaging, including our use of natural resources. We are proud of the strides we have made to date and remain committed to developing innovative ways to reduce packaging, maximizing the use of recycled materials, and upholding our commitment to sustainable sourcing. We also conduct screening level life cycle assessments (LCAs) on specific products to identify ways to reduce the environmental impact across key product categories.

Reducing Our Hoofprint
of the plastic in this MY LITTLE PONY packaging was reduced. Little Pony steps=big impact!
trees were saved in 2011 alone by reducing paper labels on basic PLAY-DOH cans. PLAY-DOH can-do!
of our paper and paperboard packaging is sourced from recycled materials or sustainably managed forests. Sustainability is in our sights!
POLYVINYL CHLORIDE (PVC)-FREE PACKAGING
is what TRANSFORMERS robots
and other Hasbro toys now come in.
That’s alt-mode design at its best!
In 2013, Hasbro eliminated polyvinyl chloride (PVC) from our toy and game packaging. In its place, we now use polyethylene terephthalate (PET) which is a material most commonly used in single-serve plastic bottles. PET is a packaging material that is recyclable in many communities. By switching to PET, we hope to encourage consumers to recycle more packaging where municipal recycling services and facilities exist. In 2016, we are investigating the use of post-consumer recycled PET in our packaging. We are also exploring ways to help educate consumers on packaging recyclability by providing on-package material recycling instructions.
