Paper bags to replace plastic ones inside sets from 2022

The financial report published yesterday included updated information about LEGO's initiative to replace plastic bags inside sets with paper ones: "[We] completed a successful trial of paper bags designed to replace single-use plastic in boxes and will begin phasing in the new paper packaging from early 2022."

The company's intention to do so was first announced in September 2020 when it was said that "From 2021, FSC-certified recyclable paper bags will be trialled in boxes." but given that there have been no reports anywhere online of them being found this year, the trial must have been very limited.

Additionally, the plastic wrapping around baseplates is being phased out and will be replaced with cardboard sleeves. Here's an official statement about it:

Over the next few months you will likely see some products with “retiring soon” branding or perhaps a local retailer reporting that they are no longer able to order certain products. We want to share ahead of time that there is no need to be alarmed about baseplates.

In 2022, baseplates will be changing from their current plastic packaging to more sustainable paper packaging. Besides packaging, there are no additional changes with the LEGO baseplates and you will still be able to get the same colours and sizes in 2022 that you can purchase today. You can expect to see the new packaging around March 1, 2022.

We are hoping to receive more information about this later in the week, so stay tuned.
