How2RecycleLogo(R)LargeHasbro, Inc., a global company committed to creating the world’s best play experiences, is the latest company  to join the growing How2Recycle Label Program. Hasbro joins over 45 other participating companies committed to educating consumers on packaging recyclability by providing clear on-package instructions.

Hasbro’s How2Recycle membership reinforces its stated commitment to reducing the environmental impacts of its products and packaging.

The How2Recycle Label will be found on a number of Hasbro products across its portfolio and will help consumers understand how to recycle each component of packaging.

“Working with How2Recycle will streamline our communication approach to help support consumers in their desire to recycle packaging, and give the material a second life,” says Kathrin Belliveau, Senior Vice President of Global Government Affairs & Corporate Social Responsibility at Hasbro. “This is one of many steps we’ve taken in recent years to make Hasbro packaging more environmentally sustainable, as we pursue our purpose to make the world a better place for children and their families.”

“We are excited to welcome Hasbro to the How2Recycle Label Program” says How2Recycle Project Manager Danielle Peacock. “Their membership shows leadership in the toy industry, and brings How2Recycle to children and their parents through Hasbro’s products. We hope that early recycling education turns into a lifelong recycling ethic.”
