Yesterday, TIME announced the top 100 Best Inventions of 2021 and LEGO was revealed to be part of the group due to their sustainability commitment and creating the first recycled brick. Back in June, LEGO revealed the first prototype LEGO brick made from recycled plastic. The new brick uses PET plastic that used discarded bottles and it took over three years for it to meet their quality, safety and play requirements. It’ll still be a while before we see the recycled bricks in sets but it’ll make a huge impact on the environment when they start rolling out.
