An announcement via Hasbro.com let us learn an important decision for Hasbro’s products packaging in the near future.
Brian Goldner, Hasbro’s Chairman and CEO states:
“Removing plastic from our packaging is the latest advancement in our more than decade-long journey to create a more sustainable future for our business and our world”
According to the extra information from the article, beginning in 2020, Hasbro plans to begin phasing out plastic from new product packaging (all their brands, not only Transformers).
These plans will include plastic elements like polybags, elastic bands, shrink wrap, window sheets and blister packs. The goal is to eliminate all plastic in Hasbro’s product and toy packaging by the end of 2022.
While we are glad Hasbro is taken care of the environment, this is now a very interesting point to debate on how it will affect Transformers collectors. Window sheets and blister packs have been a classic presentation for years letting you check the toys before you buy them. Is it time for closed boxes? What do you think about?
