There is a general perception that plastics are bad for the environment. However, there has been a considerable improvement in the quality of plastics over time and many plastic polymers like PP, PET, etc. are now completely recyclable and eco-friendly.
In 2014, in the US alone, more than 1.1 billion pounds of the post-consumer film consisting of plastic bags and packaging was recycled.
Using plastic packaging for toy items provides a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative which can be recycled and do not cause any serious damage to the environment.
