Rebuilding
the World

Nowadays there is no doubt that the world will ever be the same as it was a few months ago. All the more reason to rebuild it in a smart way.

Let’s get creative about environmental solutions! Let’s rebuild existing LEGO® sets into bicycles and scooters, wind turbines and trains of the future.

The LEGO Group considers children to be the builders of the future. That’s why the way they see the world and how they want to rebuild it is so important to us. We want to inspire them to build a friendlier, more sustainable future.

Before Green Instructions went live, we conducted a test at the exhibition where the whole world was made of LEGO bricks. We showed there the young participants that rebuilding the world is possible: that planes can be turned into electric trains, cars into bicycles or scooters, and coal mines into electricity generating windmills, because they are all a green alternative. The ecologists attended the same event and explained the story of transformation to the children while AFOL’s were turning the existing world made from LEGO bricks into their “green” alternatives. We tested the children on their knowledge of Climate Change after they attended the workshop and 100% of the children gave correct answers to the test, which verified their increased under-standing of environmental issues.

We recreated exact instructions used for existing LEGO sets – to show how to build the ecological versions. Adding information and data received from our research phase about the comparative impact on the environment. We have published them for the first time in June 2020 so that all young builders can have access to them.

Green instructions

Green Instructions show how to use the same bricks to rebuild existing LEGO® sets into creations that reflect a more sustainable future that our young builders will help shape.

New Green Instructions are being created all the time to let more and more children try their luck at rebuilding the world for good. Thanks to the instructions we can rebuild existing sets, as well as be inspired to create new environmental builds from any LEGO® bricks.

LEGO® Sustainability

Today the LEGO Group is 100% balanced by renewable energy generated from sources that we and our parent company own, such as offshore wind turbines. We’ve also installed solar panels on our factory roofs.

We’re on a mission to make LEGO® bricks from sustainable sources by 2030 without compromising quality or safety. In 2018 we started making LEGO elements from sustainably sourced sugarcane to create polyethylene: a soft, durable and flexible plastic. We are continuing to experiment with many different materials, as we expect the LEGO bricks of the future could be made from both plant-based and recycled sources.

By 2025 we will replace our current packaging with more sustainable options. We are currently trialing recyclable paper bags in our boxes to replace single-use plastic ones.

We equally like to celebrate that LEGO bricks are multigenerational toys – designed to be handed down rather than thrown away. That’s why we launched LEGO Replay in the US and Canada to collect and donate LEGO bricks to children in need of play. We are exploring where in the world we can expand next. In the meantime, we encourage you to pass your LEGO bricks on to a friend or family member or donate them to a local charity.
