Monopoly Go Green is made from 100% recycled paper and FSC wood

Hasbro releases Monopoly: Go Green edition board game made with 100% recycled paper, FSC wood and players investing in renewable energy and bike paths In the Monopoly: Go Green, players buy, sell, and trade properties, and invest in greening them up. Players build wooden greenhouses to collect more rent and invest in solar and wind utilities. And the railroads are now bike paths. In this edition of the Monopoly game, greenhouses and dice are made of FSC certified wood from well-managed forests, and tokens are made with plant-based plastic derived from sugarcane, a renewable raw material. The package, game board, game guide, money, cards, storage bag, insert, and money tray are made with 100% recycled paper.
