.....plastic toys in their 'Happy Meals'.....


McDonald's begins phasing out plastic toys in Happy Meals

McDonald’s plans to “drastically” reduce the plastic in its Happy Meal toys worldwide by 2025

....McDonald’s plans to "drastically” reduce the plastic in its Happy Meal toys worldwide by 2025.

The burger giant said Tuesday it’s working with toy companies to develop new ideas, such as three-dimensional cardboard superheroes kids can build or board games with plant-based or recycled game pieces. McDonald’s said it’s also exploring using recycled plastic toys to make new restaurant trays.

McDonald’s won’t say how many Happy Meals it sells each year. But it said the new goal will reduce virgin plastic use by 90% compared to 2018 levels.

Already in the United Kingdom and Ireland, McDonald's restaurants are only offering soft toys, paper-based toys or books. Burger King removed plastic toys from kids’ meals in the U.K. in 2019.


less........plastic.........?!

Why wait 3 years. Start tomorrow.

Run out the current promotion and be done with it until you can decide on something new.

Good. All those Happy Meal toys are just worthless crap. Now if we can just ban Oriental Trading Company from all schools we will be in even better shape.

The amount of plastic garbage in McDonalds Happy Meal toys is cringy. Usually it's a movie tie-in cross promotion of some sort. It's completely useless garbage. It goes straight into the trash after the meal. Wendy's has been doing the cardboard-ish toy for years now.

I visited a shopping mall that had an exhibition of McDonald’s Happy Meal toys. The line stretched a hundred yards or more to get in. And, no, they were not giving out free anything (admission was free) although you could enter a drawing for some prizes.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
