Purpose of packaging
Our packaging is designed to provide the best experience when unpacking LEGO® sets. For example, bags in LEGO boxes have numbers printed on them relating to the steps in our Building Instructions, which supports the building process.
But even before a LEGO set reaches the hands of a builder, the packaging is doing its job, for example by providing information and inspiration, and by protecting the LEGO set inside. We don’t want any bricks to go missing.
It’s our aim that by the end of 2025, all our packaging will be made from sustainably sourced materials that are either renewable, or made from recycled content and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®C117818).
We promote recycling and provide guidance on how to responsibly recycle LEGO packaging.

Shopping bagsWe began phasing out plastic retail bags in our 500 LEGO stores globally in 2020. The plastic retail bags are gradually being replaced with paper bags made from 100% certified Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC® C117818) material.
BlistersWe have stopped producing packaging with single-use plastic blisters – the transparent windows which allow a sneak peek into boxes.
