McDonald’s Happy Meal toys to go green globally by 2025.


McDonald’s Corp (MCD.N) said on Tuesday it will drastically cut the use of plastic in the more than 1 billion children’s toys it sells globally each year by the end of 2025.

The change involves swapping out a plastic figurine of Batman, for example, for one made with a dozen cardboard pieces that kids can put together themselves. More toys will also be made from recycled or plant-based plastics, McDonald’s said. The changes will allow the Chicago-based company to cut its use of virgin fossil fuel-based plastic for Happy Meals by 90% compared with 2018.
