Lego takes back your old Lego pieces and recycles them. At least there's that.

Legos aren't plastic.

They've been polycarbonate since 1988. They don't undergo molecular separation or breakdown, they just keep stabbing the feet of our descendants.

Also; the polycarbonate in Legos is patented. It's used in only two places on Earth (sorta):

Legos... AND THE GODDAMN ISS! The windows... are LEGO. No shiat - toughest plasticized material we've found.

To answer  subby: harmonicas.  The world needs more harmonicas.   And more Legos of course.

Lego is moving to an organic substitute. So maybe playing with your food will take on a new meaning.

I wonder what percentage of Lego ends up in the garbage?  I'm guessing it's pretty low.  When I had them, most pieces seemed indestructible.  The worst I remember was the big green base pieces would crack, but never bad enough to toss them.

Plus even back then people knew they held their value.

I get your point subby but fark, van we let kids be creative and have fun. The world needs more creative thinkers and problem solvers, not people who can spin a ring with a stick the longest

Harmonicas? When someone asks you what the world needs more of, the answer is cowbell. We always need more cowbell.

Not only that, but Legos are reusable for multiple generations, they're always relevant. Plus, they're pretty hard to break. Put all of that together, and you have an example of plastic being used in a very productive, eco-friendly way. Plastic has a very legit use, it just gets used poorly most of the time.
