Did you know that over 75% of video game packaging is made of plastic? Currently, only a small amount of packaging is made from recycled materials and it can be difficult to find somewhere that will recycle the packaging once you have finished with it. In 2019, SEGA developed new, revolutionary packaging for Football Manager 2020 that was 100% recycled and 100% recyclable. Here, you'll discover more about green practices within the video games industry...
