FIRST SUSTAINABLE LEGO® BRICKS WILL BE LAUNCHED IN 2018
LEGO® botanical elements such as leaves, bushes and trees will be made from plant-based plastic sourced from sugarcane in the future and will appear in LEGO boxes already in 2018.

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.
“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. We are proud that the first LEGO elements made from sustainably sourced plastic are in production and will be in LEGO boxes this year. This is a great first step in our ambitious commitment of making all LEGO bricks using sustainable materials,” said Tim Brooks, Vice President, Environmental Responsibility at the LEGO Group.
The move is part of the LEGO Group’s commitment to use sustainable materials in core products and packaging by 2030.

Uncompromised quality and safety
The new sustainable LEGO elements are made from polyethylene, which is a soft, durable and flexible plastic, and while they are based on sugar-cane material, they are technically identical to those produced using conventional plastic. The elements have been tested to ensure the plant-based plastic meets the high standards for quality and safety that the LEGO Group has, and consumers expect from LEGO products.
“LEGO products have always been about providing high quality play experiences giving every child the chance to shape their own world through inventive play. Children and parents will not notice any difference in the quality or appearance of the new elements, because plant-based polyethylene has the same properties as conventional polyethylene,” said Tim Brooks.
The unique LEGO brick design, and the LEGO Group’s uncompromised focus on quality and safety during the past 60 years ensures that two LEGO bricks produced decades apart can still fit together. As the LEGO Group is working towards using sustainable materials in its core products and packaging, it will remain strongly rooted and driven by the uncompromised focus on high product quality and safety.

Building children’s future one brick at a time
The LEGO Group has partnered with WWF to support and build demand for sustainably sourced plastic, and has joined the Bioplastic Feedstock Alliance (BFA), an initiative of WWF, to secure fully sustainable sourcing of raw material for the bioplastics industry. The plant based plastic used to make the botanical LEGO elements is certified by the Bonsucro Chain of Custody standard for responsibly sourced sugarcane. Read more here.
“It is essential that companies in each industry find ways to responsibly source their product materials and help ensure a future where people, nature, and the economy thrive,” said Alix Grabowski, a senior program officer at WWF. “The LEGO Group’s decision to pursue sustainably sourced bio-based plastics represents an incredible opportunity to reduce dependence on finite resources, and their work with the Bioplastic Feedstock Alliance will allow them to connect with other companies to continue to think creatively about sustainability.”

About LEGO elements made from plants
• Polyethylene elements are 1-2% of the total amount of plastic elements produced by the LEGO Group; The sustainable product range covers LEGO® botanical elements such as leaves, bushes and trees made entirely from plant-based plastic.
• Plant-based polyethylene used in LEGO elements is made from ethanol produced from sugarcane.
• The sugarcane used is sourced sustainably in accordance with guidance from the Bioplastic Feedstock Alliance (BFA) and is certified by the Bonsucro Chain of Custody standard for responsibly sourced sugarcane.
• All suppliers must comply with the LEGO Group’s Code of Conduct, which specifies strict requirements for ethical, environmental and health & safety standards based on leading global guidelines.
• The LEGO Group works closely with its suppliers to ensure life-cycle assessments are conducted, which map the environmental impacts from the production of the bio-based material.
What is a sustainable material?
There is no common definition of a sustainable material. Several aspects influence the sustainability of a material. It is to a high degree determined by its source, chemical composition, its use (in a product) and management (at end-of-life), and the impact it can have in both environmental and social areas.
The LEGO Group believes a new sustainable material must have an ever-lighter footprint than the material it replaces across key environmental and social impact areas such as fossil resource use, human rights and climate change.
About sustainability at the LEGO Group
• The LEGO Group partners with the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF), as part of efforts to reduce CO2 emissions in manufacturing and supply chain operations, and promote global action on climate change.
• Through investments in wind power, the energy used to make LEGO bricks is balanced by the production of renewable energy.
• The LEGO Group targeted 2030 to reach zero waste in operations, and introduced sustainable paper pulp trays for the LEGO advent calendar, reducing plastic waste from going to landfill.

Ja sam pogrešno naveo "biorazgradivo" a tu se ne radi o razgradnji. već održivosti, što se odnosi na energiju i materijale iz obnovljivih izvora.

Drago mi je da su prešli barem na tu "održivu" kad već ne razgradivu plastiku (ali što bi onda bilo s našim setovima kad postanu vintage?! :LEGO29: ).

Skroz interesantna tema, nisam mislila da će to tako skoro. Da li je baš ista kvaliteta, vidjet ćemo.

Romanos, pošalji im mailić s komentarom i osvrni se na autorska prava.... :LEGO21:

Možda sam prevelik pesimist, ali mislim da će sigurno biti problema s kvalitetom. Napravit će gomilu problema i posla samo da mogu reći da su ekološki orjentirani. A npr. meni kao njihovom kupcu to uopće nije bitno.

Mislim da su ovu fazu prijelaza na ekologiju mogli izvesti na neki drugi način, npr. zamjenom vrećica u setovima s nekim papirnatim recikliranim ili nešto slično. Kockice same po sebi su preskupe da bi predstavljale ekološki problem.

Kolko sam ja shvatio, plastika ce biti identicna. Razlika je u procesu od kuda se dobiva.
Slazem se s tobom Sule. Plasticne vrecice u kutijama se odmah bacaju, to trebaju mijenjat...

Ne razumijem logiku. Kakve veze cijena necega ima veze sa njezinim utjecajem na okolis? Cak ako bi i bilo neke veze onda bi veza (po meni) bila da je za skuplje stvari lakse odvojit koju Kunu vise da bude eco.

Ja podrzavam svaki korak u smjeru da manje trujemo/trosimo vlastiti planet. Drago mi je da postoje velike kompanije koje ulazu u odrzivost. LEGO producira ogromne kolicine kockica i ako i samo mali postotak toga zamjeni necim vise eco-friendly, to ce imat velik utjecaj na okolis.

I uvjerena sam da je LEGO svjestan da se plasticne vrecice bacaju, pa cu morati pretpostaviti da papirnate ne bi bile dovoljno izdrzive ili nesto pa da ih zato ne koriste. Mijenjaju ono sto mogu bez da smanje kvalitetu (barem sam ja tako shvatila njihov cilj).

Dijelovi koje ce za sada raditi od nove plastike su dijelovi koji su i do sada bili od mekane plastike. Recimo oni bambusi nemaju bas dobar clutch power, ispadaju sa studa cim ih pogledas. Vjerujem da ce kvaliteta biti ista ili bolja, ali kad počnu raditi tvrde abs dijelove, moram priznati da dijelim skepticizam.

Ako misle ostvariti 100% održivost do 2030. sigurno će i vrećice doći na red. Taj materijal je u teoriji reciklabilan, ali gotovo nitko nema tehnologiju za to.

Post Re: LEGO- zanimljivosti
Moja izjava je bila u smjeru da se kockice ne odbacuju u ogromnim količinama koje bi naštetile okolišu kao što su to plastične vrećice (bilo iz setova ili iz trgovačkih lanaca) i slično 'jednokratno' smeće. Kockice su (relativno) 'skupe' da bi ih se kupovalo na kilograme i za dan/dva odbacivalo kao nepotrebne. Suhi je shvatio bit mog komentara.

Svaki pomak u ekologiji je dobar, ali sam samo na jednom primjeru naveo gdje je taj pomak puno 'vidljiviji' i prirodi korisniji.

Ako mogu kockice raditi iz drugih materijala (ili na drugi način) koje su 'primarni' problem (clutch power, elastičnost, otpornost.......... namjerno nisam stavio samo 3 točkice), onda vjerujem da bi za vrećice jako brzo našli prihvatljivo zamjensko rješenje. I nisu u pitanju samo vrećice iz setova. Ima takvih primjera više.
