Lego has announced the launch of its first sustainable pieces made out of plant-based plastic sourced from ethanol extracted from sugar cane. This will apply to botanical pieces (trees, bushes, leaves...) which will be available later this year. The limitation is however clear, such a change will only concern 1 to 2% of the entire production of Lego pieces and bricks, but in view of the production scale we're talking about, it is a great start. Read the article from The Guardian here, and in case there are any Danish speakers here, you will find here the statement post from WWF that has supported Lego in a better use of plastic materials and the identification of sustainable alternatives.
