Lego Will Take Back Your Old Bricks And Recycle Them

Lego is looking to keep its plastic bricks out of the trash. They are now testing a way for customers to ship their unwanted bricks back and get them into the hands of other kids. They have announced that customers can print out a mailing label on its site, dump their used Lego bricks in a box, and ship them off for free. Lego says the pieces will be cleaned, put in a box and given to Teach for America, a non-profit that will donate them to classrooms. Some bricks will be also sent to after-school programs.  Right now they are being distributed in the US as a trial but it will likely expend next year. Lego is looking to please customers worried about the impact of non-disintegrating plastic on the environment.
