LEGO® has said it will introduce parts to its collection made from sugar cane, admitting it needs to do more to join the fight against plastic waste.

A new range of “sustainable” parts including leaves, bushes and trees made from sugar cane are currently in production, and will hit toy shop shelves later this year.

At present LEGO®‘s famous bricks are made from ABS plastic which is made from crude oil, however the firm has committed to making them sustainable by 2030.
