But, this is not in fact the curious system that allows the opening of this package. After pulling the tape that allows and opening, the content includes two bags and a brochure. The brochure gives you a brief history of how sustainable are the parts of the plant.

From what was announced, the new pieces are made from plant-based polyethylene, produced from ethanol from sugarcane. The sugar cane that is used is achieved in a sustainable way in accordance with the guidelines of the Alliance of Bioplastics based materials (BFA), and is certified by the Bonsucro chain-of-custody standard.

Once compared these new elements with existing plant, there is no recognizable differences between the two. Are exactly alike and behave as regular pieces of Lego. You can mix them with your existing collection and you don't need to worry that you don't mix.

This set "Plant of plants", is an excellent introduction to elements that are produced by plant-based materials. Since they are made with sugar cane, Lego is really helping the environment and the planet itself, reducing the amount of fossil fuels used to produce their blocks.

As a promotional item, Lego is allowing fans to know what they are doing to help the environment, and it is an initial kick towards their goal; Use sustainable materials in all its main products and packaging up to 2030.
