Lego is encouraging fans to “share the joy of building” and to give back at the same time and they’re making it really easy to do. The Lego Group’s pilot program, LEGO Replay, accepts “any and all” previously used Lego bricks and then donates them to children’s nonprofits in the U.S.
All you have to do is collect any “loose Lego bricks, sets or elements” or Duplo bricks that you want to donate, put them in a box, and print out a free USPS shipping label from the site. You don’t even have to clean or separate them, they’ll do all that for you. The program is a partnership with Give Back Box, which sorts through the bricks, packs them and donates them to either Teach for America or Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston.
Tim Brooks, Vice President of Environmental Responsibility at the LEGO Group, explains that this is “an easy option that’s both sustainable and socially impactful.” And we say getting rid of Legos no one is playing with anymore to pass them down to “share the power of play” with kids who need them most is a win-win.
