Burger King have just gone way up in my estimations. Why? Well, they are doing their bit for the planet, by offering parents to hand in those unwanted plastic toys - you know the ones that the kids get in McDonalds Happy Meals and Burger King JR Meals?
As of 19th September, Burger King will be removing plastic toys from our junior meals, in each of their UK restaurants. This seems very logical, as how many times does a child actually play with their "FREE" toy that they've received with a meal? Once? Twice, at a push? That's why we think this recycle scheme from Burger King, is a fantastic idea.
All you have to do is hand in those unwanted plastic toys to your nearest Burger King restaurant, between the 19th and the 30th September 2019, and you'll be rewarded with a FREE King Junior Meal when you purchase and adult meal. Winner!
What toys are eligible? Any toy that is given with a King Junior Meal, McDonalds Happy Meal, magazines or similar can be handed in.
What will happen with the toys that are handed in? Burger King will use the discarded plastic toys to make play areas and special trays.
This is an effort to eradicate single-use plastic toys by replacing any new plastics that would have been purchased for trays and play areas.
