Looking for a LEGO alternative that's a little more earth friendly? Of course you're not. You're not looking for anything but a low calorie beer that'll still get you drunk but doesn't taste like complete ass. Ha -- I know you better than you know yourself! Just kidding, I'm projecting. Enter Earth Blocks, fake LEGO blocks that come in one size, are made from recycled materials like coffee beans, cedar sawdust and tree bark, and cost $30 for 50. *spitting recycled coffee bean coffee* $30 for 50?! Good lord. You want some earth friendly LEGO blocks on the cheap? I'm your man. "Are those TURDS?" Straight from the cat's ass. You can pretend they're Lincoln Logs if you don't like LEGOs.

There are Comments.
  • Actually, we really don't know what goes into real LEGO bricks. Because its still a "family-owned" company, LEGO Group is not required to disclose the trade secrets related to the composition of their bricks.

  • Is this really the best they could come up with in terms of an eco-friendly product?  It looks like the pieces don't even fit into each other properly.

  • "coffee beans, cedar sawdust and tree bark" - they're already made of crap that's biodegradable. So what's the point?

    Yay!  Garbage building blocks made out of garbage and they're roughly 6 times the price of a LEGO set with the same amount of pieces.

    If things like this are saving the environment, I don't think this planet is worth it...

    ...I do remember having a bucket of LEGO brick-type candy once, though... those things were awesome!

  • that tree looks so crooked . . . and poopy
