LEGO IDEAS goes green with new Treehouse set!

LEGO announced their latest LEGO IDEAS set today with this awesome looking treehouse!

All LEGO IDEAS projects are submitted by fans, with this one created by Kevin Feeser.  LEGO was inspired to celebrate his design "for its endless creativity that its unique to the LEGO System in Play and its embodiment of the LEGO Group’s sustainable materials challenge." 

Here's a good look at the cabins

This huge 3,036 piece set has a landscape base and removable treetop to reveal three detailed cabins. This includes the treetop canopy, which has interchangeable sets of green summer leaf elements and yellow and brown fall leaf elements.

In case you don't know, LEGO set a goal to have all sustainable brinks by 2030.  They have also been challenging themselves to find new, environmentally friendly packaging by 2025.  According to the press release, these bricks are made from green polyethylene, which is made from ethanol produced from sustainably sourced Brazil sugarcane.  So who doesn't want to build plants with plants?!  Don't worry about them falling apart though.  LEGO says "The elements do not biodegrade…because we want to make safe, functional and durable products that can be played with for generations."

This is awesome and the green initiative is a great step for LEGO.  Check out the pics and then scrounge up the cash to buy it!  The new LEGO IDEAS Treehouse set is available in LEGO Retail Stores from August 1, 2019 (July 24, 2019 for LEGO VIP), at $199.99 USD.
