New range of sustainable Lego

Lego follows the trend to start with a sustainable production. First out is botanical elements such as leaves, bushes and trees. They will be made from a plant-based plastic. The soft, durable and flexible plastics are based on sugar-cane material. Lego’s target, by the year 2030, is to reach zero waste in operations and to introduce sustainable paper, reducing plastic waste.

Things you didn’t know about Lego!

A Lego brick from 1958 is still compatible with a new Lego brick produced today. Pretty cool, it’s not many companies who haven’t changed through out the company’s long history. Lego has new updated designs on their sets, but the brick design still remain!

The history of Lego – animated film

I published a post in 2016 about this video. I just want to give all Lego fans who haven’t seen this story a new chance. When The LEGO Group celebrated its’ 80th birthday, they made this animated film to let everyone know more about the history of Lego.

X-mas at Lego House Denmark

It seems that it also was Christmas at the Lego House in Billund! The entrance was decorated with a nobel X-mas tree. I could easily spend a day or two during my holiday at the new House of the Brick. This is the place to be for a Lego fan. I can easily recommend a visit and yes, it’s absolutely worth a trip!

Interview in a daily newspaper!

Today I had an interview for UNT – a Swedish daily newspaper. They wanted me to share and talk about my interest and passion for Lego. The interview will bee published in print as well as in their digital channels. It was great fun and a bit unusual to talk to a reporter while looking into a camera. I give you heads up when the interview goes viral.
