LEGO Bricks: Eco-friendly and Sugarcane Sweet

LEGO is going green! The Danish toy company has come out with a new line of leaves, bushes and tree bricks made from plant-based plastic sourced from sugarcane. Their intention is to manufacture most of its products and packaging using environmentally friendly materials or recycled sources by 2030.

Kids attending Ocean Heroes Bootcamp (OHBC) in Vancouver earlier this summer spent time building, creating and inventing with LEGOs. Company execs showed up with boxes and boxes of bricks for crate loads of fun! 

Other companies represented at bootcamp who are leading the way to sustainability:

Nature’s Path, makers of cereal & granola bars says by 2025 “all of our packaging will be reusable, recyclable or compostable.”

Stasher, manufactures reusable silicone storage bags that are eco friendly, environmentally safe & a smart alternative to single-use plastic.

Aardvark Straws, makers of paper straws has a mission to “change the world one sip at a time.”

Alaska Airlines, is eliminating plastic straws, recycling onboard items and using locally made food & beverage items.

**Ocean Heroes Bootcamp is a summit for kids ages 9 to 18 who are creating campaigns to stomp out plastic pollution.
