Do you have a ton of old Lego bricks that your kids don’t play with anymore? If you do, Lego has recently announced a recycling program for used, unwanted Lego pieces that will help those who need it. The company recently announced its partnership with Give Back Box to launch a recycling program called Replay.
This pilot program lets parents from anywhere in the United States mail in their children’s old used Lego bricks, free of charge. They are currently accepting Lego bricks of all sizes, colors, and shapes.
Give Back Box will sort and clean the Lego bricks so that they can have a second life with someone else. The collected bricks will be sent to Teach for America and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston.
Replay is expected to run through the Spring of 2020 and if successful could continue beyond that. The new program is part of the company’s shift towards more sustainable and eco-friendly practices. Now you can avoid the excruciating pain of accidentally stepping on all those old, useless Lego pieces and also help those in need!
