Hasbro making Face Shields to help with the fight against Covid-19

Quote

Hasbro will be contributing a major effort to the battle against COVID-19 by making face shields for hospital workers in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

They are partnering with Cartamundi to produce 50,000 face shields per week (to make 250 000 total) for front line health care workers, and those masks will be produced in a facility in Massachusetts. So not only will there be more face shields available, but this will also be providing continued employment for the workers at that facility, who will be respecting all proper social distancing guidelines.

And the fact that these are donations means these states will not have to participate as much in the current bidding war states are having against eachother for this particular personal protective equipment, which has been a major strain on states' budgets.

"We are grateful for the opportunity to work together with our partners at Cartamundi to produce much-needed personal protective equipment (PPE), to directly assist the critical needs of front-line medical workers in our community," John Frascotti, president and COO of Hasbro, wrote in a statement.

I also like how they are trying to remove plastic from the packaging.

Yeah, cause that way, they can use a lot more paper and cardboard. After all, this is the 2020s, who needs trees anymore?

At least cardboard isn't covering the world's oceans. Also what's stopping them from using recycled cardboard in their packaging and recycled plastics for that matter?

You DO realize what those action figures INSIDE the packaging are made of . . . right?

There is a big difference between the plastic figure that kid will play with and we put on our shelves and the packaging that we throw away.

Plastic is plastic, and you just illustrated my point. It doesn't matter if it's toys, packaging, or medical face-shields; plastic is not evil, it's a necessary part of modern life . . . especially if you consider causes like ecology and conservation of natural resources as something more than this month's trendy rhetoric.

Lol, *facepalm. Cause the packages don't include paper already.. Paper is easily recyclable, The process of recycling plastic (which creates harmful gases) will eventually kill more trees... Also, Arbor day just passed. I planted 30 trees. You could help if you wanted too.

You do realize people collect action figures and keep them on their shelves for 25+ years or hand them down right? it's not like a water bottle you toss after 30 - 45 mins. 

Also, they are different plastics and can be melted and remolded.

No, not really. The cellulose cells that give wood, and paper, their strength, are weakened every time they are processed, be it a first generation milling or recycling. You can recycle paper maybe two or three times before it won't even form a solid anymore.

Then you've got pre-consumer vs. post-consumer recycling. Hint: Pre-consumer recycling doesn't do anything to help trees, but works great pacifying arm-chair environmentalists who don't know any better.

So, *facepalm* right back atcha.

Also, if you didn't know you could have done a quick google, cause you would have found your response to be incorrect.

"Paper is biodegradable because is made from plant materials and most plant materials are biodegradable. Paper is easily recycled and can be recycled up 6 or 7 times before the paper fibers become too short to be used for paper production"

And just so you are properly prepared next time.

"Despite its low durability, one advantage of paper is that it decomposes much more quickly than plastic, and therefore it is less likely to be a source of litter and pose a risk to wildlife. Paper is also more widely recyclable, while plastic bags can take between 400 and 1,000 years to decompose." 🙂
