Mattel recently launched a “Barbie Loves the Ocean” collection featuring dolls made from 90% recycled ocean-bound plastic?? The dolls are made from plastic pieces that were collected from areas within 30 miles of the water without formal waste collection systems.
“To truly show the next generation they can be anything, we must do our part in protecting the planet, reducing our environmental impact, and promoting sustainable everyday behaviors,” said Mattel Senior Vice President Lisa Knight.
They also released a video as part of Barbie’s YouTube vlog where they talk about ways to be sustainable, including turning off the faucet while you brush your teeth, upcycling trash, using a reusable water bottle, and composting! They emphasize that a lot of little changes add up
