    LEGO to Start Making Plant Elements From Actual Plants
    Hot Bionicle NewsPosted on Thursday, March 1st, 2018 at 9:42am by Andrew, BZPower News Manager

    The LEGO Group has begun their move away from oil-based plastics! As they announced in their newsroom, starting later this year parts made from polyethylene plastic such as leaves, bushes, and trees will be moved over to plant-based plastic sourced from sugarcane. According to the press release, the old and new plastic will have the same appearance and properties and be virtually identical to each other. Parts made from ABS will be unchanged for now. The parts have gone through the same rigorous safety testing as traditional elements but have the advantage of being sustainably sourced. How do you feel about this change? Are you going to stock up on old trees or embrace the new ones? Let us know in the Talkback!
