Evidently, Barbie Digs Deforestation: Greenpeace Exposes Mattel for Using Unsustainable Packaging — Mattel is the nation’s largest and most iconic toy company, and the creator of perhaps the most famous and enduring toy in America: Barbie. Unfortunately, a new report from Greenpeace reveals that Mattel relies on packaging made from wood obtained in Indonesia’s threatened rainforests — which are home to a slew of endangered species like orangutans and tigers. The green group is urging the toymaker to stop using rainforest-derived packaging products, so in conjunction with releasing the report, Greenpeace marked the beginning of its campaign by unfurling an embarrassing banner at Mattel’s L.A. headquarters.
