Don’t forget to call out, “UNO!” The world’s most popular card game just went sustainable. UNO Nothin’ But Paper is the same matching game everyone loves, but it’s the first UNO deck that has removed cellophane from its packaging and is now 100% recyclable.

UNO Nothin’ But Paper

UNO also plans to remove the cellophane from 100% of standard, paper-based decks entirely in 2021 – on its way to achieving Mattel’s 2030 commitment to achieve 100% recycled, recyclable or bio-based plastics materials in our products and packaging.

UNO Nothin’ But Paper

UNO has always been committed to creating a low-waste and reusable card game for all people to enjoy, and as of 2020, all decks and packaging are made with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified materials and feature soy-based ink for the paper cards that are non-VOC (volatile organic compounds), more efficient for recycling and made from soybeans, a renewable resource.

UNO Nothin’ But Paper retails for $5.99 and is available on Amazon for ages 7Y+.
