NEW YORK (AP) — Lego says it will be ditching the plastic bags inside its boxed sets and replacing them with paper ones.
The Danish toymaker said it will start making the switch next year and expects the plastic bags to be completely gone in the next 5 years.
The bags are used to hold loose bricks in boxed sets. Lego, as well as other big brands, have been looking for ways to cut their plastic use to please customers increasingly worried about how their purchases impact the environment.
Lego said the recyclable paper bags are easier for kids to open.
