LEGO will donate used pieces to non-profit organizations

National News

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – The next time you step on one of your kids’ LEGOs and get tempted to throw them all away… don’t just pitch them in the trash.

LEGO has a new way for you to donate them to children’s non-profits.

The LEGO Group announced a pilot program called LEGO Replay Tuesday.

All you have to do is put your used bricks in a box, then go to the LEGO Replay website and print out a free shipping label.

They’ll go to a give back box facility that’s a charity that recycles clothes and shoes.

There, the LEGOs will be sorted, inspected and cleaned.

LEGO Replay is a collaboration with give back box, Teach for America, and Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston, where many of the bricks will end up.

The LEGO Group calls Replay “both sustainable and socially impactful.”
