LEGO is investing $150 million to make better, more sustainable toy bricks

Comments Off on LEGO is investing $150 million to make better, more sustainable toy bricks

Whether they’re used in architecture or animal prosthesis , we have an enduring affection for LEGO bricks —but they do have a nagging problem; the blocks and all their packaging are made of plastic, which is pretty darn horrible for the environment. While some folks have tried to offer sustainable alternatives—notably the rather drab-looking Earth Blocks —LEGO hasn’t stepped forward with their own eco-friendly alternative. But that is set to change, as the company just announced that they will invest $150 million to build a sustainable materials research center at their headquarters in Denmark. LEGO is hiring over 100 specialists in material science to shape the new, green future of everyone’s favorite building brick.

Comments Off on The US just declared all captive chimps to be endangered

Chimpanzees are now officially considered an endangered species , according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service , and will be designated as such under the Endangered Species Act . The move comes after activist Jane Goodall, The Humane Society and other groups submitted a petition for the classification. The idea is to remove the distinction between captive chimpanzees , who were previously listed as threatened and their wild counterparts who are deemed endangered. The rules went into effect on June 16 and include a 90-day grace period, and won’t be enforced until September 16, 2016.
