Earth Blocks: Like LEGOs, But Green

 |  |  |  |  |  February 10, 2012


With all the emphasis on going green or all-natural these days, I think it’s just appropriate for toys to follow suit. The first one being LEGOs – or should I say, Earth Blocks.

Earth Blocks

There are two reasons why they’re named that way: first of all, they’re all in earth tones or colors. Second of all, that’s because they’re made from stuff derived from the earth like coffee beans,┬ácedar sawdust or cedar bark.

Earth Blocks

They might not look as attractive as the extremely colorful plastic LEGO blocks, but I think you could definitely teach a thing or two about using eco-friendly stuff to your kids with these blocks. That, and the fact that appearances are just appearances because you can pretty much do the same thing with Earth Blocks and plain LEGO bricks, creating whatever structure your mind can come up with.

Sure, it’s not like you typically throw out LEGO bricks, but there are bound to be by-products of manufacturing all that plastic, right? If you’re ready to go green with your bricks, you can get a set of 50 Earth Blocks over at the Guggenheim Store for $30(USD).
