CNBC: Lego Plant-Based! Classic Toy Announces Sustainable Plastic Pieces


Lego is leading the way in zero waste and sustainability. CNBC reports:

Toy manufacturer Lego has announced it is to make some of its pieces, including leaves, bushes and trees, from sustainable, plant-based plastic.

The material will be sourced from sugarcane and production of the pieces, or “elements,” has already started. They will be launched this year, the Danish business said Thursday.

“We are proud that the first Lego elements made from sustainably-sourced plastic are in production and will be in Lego boxes this year,” Tim Brooks, the Lego Group’s vice president for environmental responsibility, said in a statement. “This is a great first step in our ambitious commitment of making all Lego bricks using sustainable materials.”
