McDonald’s is phasing out the plastic toys in their Happy Meals.

They announced they will drastically reduce the plastic in their meals by 2025.

They’ve also pledged to have every toy made from renewable, recycled, or certified materials.

They said in a statement, “Making our toys out of renewable, recycled, or certified materials will result in about a 90% reduction of fossil fuel-based plastic in Happy Meal toys, from a baseline of 2018. For perspective, that’s more or less the size of the entire population of Washington, DC, eliminating plastics from their lives for a year.”

Do you try to use less plastic?
