August 7, 2018
LEGO has launched its first range of sustainable blocks. The “Plants from Plants” set, which features botanical elements including trees, leaves and bushes, uses blocks that are 98% polyethylene made from sugarcane. Sets are currently available in the U.K., Germany and Austria, as well as the U.S. and Canada. The Danish toy maker says it intends to manufacture all core products and packaging using environmentally friendly materials by 2030.
Commenting on the new range Tim Brooks, vice-president of environmental responsibility said:
“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.”
