The future finally comes to Mattel as the Matchbox Tesla Roadster finally gets pre-orders. This car is a big deal as it is their first die-cast made from 99% recycled materials. It is a certified CarbonNeutral product and even features its asking made from recycled materials. Everything about the Telsa Roadster comes to Matchbox with intense detail that shows that this new greener initiative is nothing to worry about. Pre-orders are live on Mattel Creations right here for $20.00, and it is set to hit the road in September 2022.
The green fun does not stop at Mattel there, as two more Matchbox releases are on the way. A new electric vehicle multipack and Recycling Truck will be driving on in next with new ISCC certified bio-circular materials that will only help the Earth in the long run. Both Matchbox sets will feature easy-to-remove packaging and hold back on the plastic. Mattel is changing the way toys are made one toy at a time and it is fantastic. Check out everything you need to about the roadmap to a greener future here, and be sure to get your Tesla Roadster while you're at it.
