Everything is awesome.

There are a few mottos we like to live our lives by – one being that you’re never too old to play with Lego.

The brand is appealing to those with a soft spot for the environment, announcing it has begun making some of its pieces from a sustainable, plant-based plastic alternative.

Sourced from sugarcane, the new material is being applied to LEGO’s botanical elements, including leaves, bushes and trees. They’re are already in production too, and will appear in boxes later this year.

“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,” read an official statement.

“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.”

The move follows the brand’s commitment to using sustainable materials in core products and packaging by 2030.
