Let’s build
a brighter tomorrow together

We’re continuously seeking more sustainable solutions.

We believe in the future of play.
That’s why we’ve taken our first steps toward building a kid-friendly planet by incorporating more sustainable practices into creating our blocks, packaging and more.

Long-lasting building system

We pride ourselves on an integrated system of play. All of our building sets can be connected together; this means our toys are always compatible and never go out of date. By design, we’ve created long-lasting toys that can be passed down again and again.

Plant-Based Blocks

Plant-based plastics

All of the blocks in our plant-based line are made from bio-based resins. These blocks are made with a minimum of 90% plant-based plastics (plastic made from materials extracted from plants). Our plant-based blocks are recyclable (see our Terracycle® partnership below) and are just as durable and long-lasting as our traditional blocks. In fact, both types of blocks stack together perfectly.

How we reduce waste

How we reduce waste

To reduce waste, we incorporate a holistic approach – we think about ways we can make every toy as sustainable as possible – from concept to retail/ whether online on in-store.

Sustainability is a primary concern for all our teams: Our designers consider plastic and cardboard (packaging) reduction, assembly line optimization and recyclability; our engineers explore efficient manufacturing practices; our packaging specialists are aiming to replace materials with recycled and recyclable alternatives.

We’re not perfect, but we are working hard to be better, to be more responsible. We’re all about progress, not perfection. And we’re proud to be heading in the right direction because we’re committed to building a kid-friendly planet.

Sustainable packaging

We strive to be as sustainable as possible when it comes to our packaging:

85%

of our packaging is made from recyclable materials

Recycled materials

All packaging and instruction manuals are made from FSC certified materials such as recycled and sustainably sourced materials

95%

of packaging and packaging components can be recycled again

Soy-based inks

Packaging features soy-based inks and water-based lamination

H2Recycle

The H2Recycle logo appears on all of our packaging to educate on how to recycle our packaging

TerraCycle® Partnership

We’ve partnered with TerraCycle in Canada to make recycling our toys easier. (We’re looking forward to further expansion.) Click below to find out how our blocks are recycled and help us ensure that none of our toys end up in landfills!
