Our Eco-Friendly Products

In 2021, VTech® introduced a variety of green electronic learning products, marking an important step towards its sustainability commitment to replacing fossil-based plastics with sustainable alternatives by 2030.

Reducing Our Footprint to Help Save the Planet

VTech’s sustainability mission is to design, manufacture and supply innovative and high quality products in a manner that minimizes impact on the environment, while creating sustainable value for our customers and communities. Here are some highlights from last year’s progress:

Global Progress Toward a Sustainable Future-81% recycling rate of reusable materials, 11% less electricity used in plastic and assembly factories, expanded use of solar tech at our Corporate Offices, 19% less packaging materials used for finished goods, 24% less water used per output.
