No. 6: An Ocean of Plastic

Speaking of plastic. It's true. many modern board games include plastic figures, vacuformed inserts, foam package protection, and other non eco-friendly materials. The current nature of mass production of board games isn't overly environmentally friendly either.

There is hope for the future of this consumer driven industry. In today's modern world of manufacturing, some board game manufacturers are using more sustainable resources, eco-friendly materials, and environmentally friendly processes. Some small batch producers are even 3D printing miniatures and board game parts using eco-friendly and biodegradable materials.

So, what can you do as a consumer? As you dive deeper into the world of board games and tabletop products, there's more that can be done than just looking for eco-friendly publishers. Many board games that have been produced are still sitting in warehouses and retail shelves across the world waiting to be played. Absolutely, support board game publishers with their new and exciting products that they create, but you can also support them by purchasing some of their older titles. Just because a game might be more than a decade old, that doesn't mean it's not a great game! Some of our favourite games are much older than that.

Moving on, let's see how Keith get's his wings...
