LEGO Transitions to Plant-Based Bricks & Recycled Plastic

If your child is like ours and no birthday wish list is complete without a new LEGO set, we’re sharing some happy green news.

LEGO is transitioning their bricks to plant-based plastic… and they have more green initiatives in the works.

These new sustainable LEGO botanical elements (leaves, bushes, and trees for now) are made from plant-based plastic sourced from sugarcane.

“At the LEGO Group we want to make a positive impact on the world around us, and are working hard to make great play products for children using sustainable materials,” said Tim Brooks, vice president of environmental responsibility at the LEGO Group, in this month’s press release.

Is LEGO going to stop using plastic?

A new recycled prototype, which uses PET plastic from discarded bottles, was announced in June 2021.

When you’re ready, get into a comfortable position. Sit or lie back and feel your body relaxing fully. Just knowing we are about to start a few quiet minutes of meditation can relax you.

Let your eyes gently close and take in a big, full breath. Deep breathing is good for your whole body.
