Greening the board game industry with Big Potato Games

Party games can be a fun reason for everyone to get together, but they can also take a lot of resources to make. Big Potato takes a sustainable approach to make game time a little greener. You may have seen Big Potato games in the past. The company is responsible for titles such as Herd Mentality, Mean Girls the Party Game and The Chameleon. These games are available at major retailers all over the U.S., including Target. Big Potato gets ideas from everywhere for their games. People from game designers to everyday gamers have submitted game ideas.

The company works with the Eden Reforestation Project and Ecologi to plant a tree for every game sold. It’s their “one game, one tree” commitment. Through this initiative, Big Potato is planting mangrove trees in Madagascar and working toward reforestation in Mozambique and Kenya. Almost 900 trees have already been planted. But wait, there’s more. Big Potato has cut back on excess packaging and transportation, streamlining its manufacturing and shipping practices. The games are put in the smallest possible boxes to reduce the space taken up inside the truck, meaning more items can ship at once. This helps lower the transportation pollution involved in shipping the games. Big Potato is also looking for ways to cut back on plastic. The company has committed to making 64% of its games being plastic -free by the end of 2021. This goal will be achieved by targeting the plastic waste commonly associated with boxed games, such as shrink wrap around the boxes and game cards and plastic box inserts inside the game. Instead, cellulose stickers will secure the boxes, and recyclable paper bands will keep the game cards in place. + Big Potato Games Images via Big Potato Games
