I spent the better part of the weekend snapping together Lego pieces. I did this before I had a kid, and now it’s a guarantee. There’s no better toy. But what does this have to do with plants? Well, as part of Lego Group’s shift to sustainable products by 2030, they announced that their first sustainably-sourced pieces will be green, literally, and arrive this year.

Production has started on a range of sustainable LEGO® elements made from plant-based plastic sourced from sugarcane. The new sustainable LEGO ‘botanical’ elements will come in varieties including leaves, bushes and trees.
