McDonald’s is dropping plastic toys on its popular Happy Meal kids’ menu. The fast food brand expects a law in 2022. Menus will keep gifts without plastic.
A plastic loonie tunes, minions or sonic look? An old-fashioned gift from McDonald’s. Plastic has disappeared from children’s games offered on the children’s menu Happy Meal since Wednesday. However, restaurants may continue to offer this for a few days to sell their shares.
However, gifts do not disappear from the menu of famous children. Now on offer is a giant OMY Smurfs coloring page. Brand planned books (which already exist), coloring, cardboard figurines or collectible cards in the coming weeks Parisian.
Why is McDonald abandoning plastic toys? For the fast food chain, this is the application of its environmental transformation. It is also a way to know the law in advance. The Circular Economy Act plans to ban plastic toys on children’s menus from January 1, 2022. McDonald’s is ahead of the law of the future.
McDonald’s in the United Kingdom and Ireland announced such a move in 2020 after a petition was filed in 2018 by two British schoolgirls. They had collected half a lakh signatures.
The decision will reduce the brand’s plastic consumption by 3,000 tonnes across the channel.
