When it’s time to move out of Barbie’s Dreamhouse, the next stop doesn’t have to be the landfill. Mattel is taking back old Barbie, Matchbox and Mega toys for free as part of a new toy recycling program called Mattel PlayBack. Consumers can print out a free shipping label to mail their outgrown toys back to the California company — and have the parts reused to make future products.
Mattel PlayBack is a free way to recycle your old Barbie, Matchbox and Mega toys.
The new recycling program is the latest step Mattel is taking to become more sustainable and reach its goal of having 100 percent recycled, recyclable or bio-based plastic materials across all products and packaging by 2030.
To get a free shipping label for qualifying toys, go to Mattel’s official site and click the “Get Started” button. The label will be emailed to you one hour after submitting your request.
You’ll need to supply your own box to mail out the toys. But you don’t need to worry about cleaning or repairing the toys before sending them back. (Mattel just asks that you do remove the batteries.)
Mattel will sort through the toys collected, separate them by material type, then have them processed. For materials that can’t be repurposed in new toys, Mattel announced it will either turn them into other plastic products or covert it from waste to energy.
