bio!TOY 2023 (hybrid)

Save the date!

Plastic is by far the most commonly used material for toys. However, the widespread criticism of plastics has not left the industry unscathed. Manufacturers such as Lego or Mattel have announced that in future they will only use alternative materials that do not come from fossil raw material sources. Recyclability, the use of recycled or renewable raw materials, as well as significantly lower CO2 emissions are important new development goals.

After the first two bioTOY conference sin 2019 and 2021, which were successful with about 100 participants, manufacturers of sustainable plastics and toys will again exchange news and experiences from 21 to 22 March . The meeting in Nuremberg (hybrid, i.e. on-site and online) is supported by important industry platforms and interest groups (such as DVSI, Spielwarenmesse, Agency for Renewable resources FNR).
