Plastic is by far the most commonly used material for toys. However, the widespread criticism of plastics has not left the industry unscathed.

Manufacturers such as Lego or Mattel have announced that in future they will only use alternative materials that do not come from fossil raw material sources. Recyclability, the use of recycled or renewable raw materials, as well as significantly lower CO2 emissions are important new development goals.

Manufacturers of sustainable plastics and toys will exchange news and experiences from 7 to 8 September at the bio!TOY 2021 event in Nuremberg, Germany. This will be a hybrid meeting, i.e. on-site and online that is supported by important industry platforms and interest groups (such as DVSI, Spielwarenmesse, European Bioplastics). The first bioTOY conference held in 2019 was successful with almost 100 participants.

See the event calendar for more details.
