bio!TOY 2021

The second bio!TOY conference on 7-8 September 2021 in Nuremberg, Germany,  will bring together manufacturers of bio-based materials and toys.

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 bioTOY conference in 2019, which was successful with almost 100 participants, manufacturers of sustainable plastics and toys will once again exchange news and experiences from 7 to 8 September. The meeting in Nuremberg (hybrid, i.e. on-site and online) is supported by important industry platforms and interest groups (such as DVSI, Spielwarenmesse, European Bioplastics).

The programme will be published soon. The "Call for papers" is still open.
