Plasto presents ECO-Friendly toys

Frankfurt, 11th September 2017 - Plasto, a toy company in Finland has over 60 years of experience in manufacturing high quality plastic toys. Their focus is very strong on safety and durability. Furthermore, they are extremely focused on environmental values. For several decades they have been using recycled plastic from their own production in order not to waste any material and they keep on investing more to save the environment and be good to nature. In spring 2017, Plasto launched their own I'm greenT toy range. All the toys in this range are over 90% biobased. The raw material which is used derives from sugar cane. By doing this, Plasto will significantly reduce the carbon footprint of its toys as well as the use of fossil resources. For every kg of I'm greenT Polyethylene used in Plastos' toys more than 5 kg of CO2 is saved. The toys are food contact safe and dishwasher safe. At the end of their life cycle they can be recycled and the raw material can be reused which is in accordance with Plasto's philosophy. The I'm greenT toys have been extremely well received. For Christmas Plasto will be expanding it's range with new items.

"Our I'm greentm toy range has been extremely well received by our customers. We have expanded our I'm green range with crane and fire truck already for this Christmas. We are proud to offer a sustainable choice," says Kennet Berndtsson, Managing Director at Plasto.
