LEGO sustainable build event starts today at the Natural History Museum

A special build event kicks off at the Natural History Museum to launch the new sustainable LEGO “plant from plant” elements.

Families are invited to come along on a sustainable quest at the Natural History Museum in London to learn more about the environment and then build a sustainable superhero. The LEGO Group is launching new Plants from Plants elements as part of a promotion this August, with the mascot Plant Maximus.

With a selection of regular bricks and the new sustainable botanical elements available, children will be asked to put together their own sustainable superhero. They will be inspired by a host of characters that have been built by adult fans.

The Plants from Plants promotion, which sees fans get a free box of the new pieces with qualifying purchases, is running now at
