LEGO Will Start Selling Sustainable, Plant-Based Blocks This Year

LEGO has become an industry leader in going sustainable.

LEGO enthusiasts often imagine some version of their ideal world when building with the brand’s multi-colored blocks and accessories —thriving cityscapes, verdant fields, space parks.

But with the knowledge that plastic pollution is overwhelming the world’s ecosystems, buying any form of plastic comes to seem like a contradiction of environmental ideals.

That’s why LEGO has decided to move away from plastic in its supply chain, according to a press release, and it could help customers feel less guilty about buying new blocks.
