We love you Lego!

The Lego Company are trialling a pilot scheme in the United States called LEGO® Replay, where people can donate their old Lego bricks to non-profits that work with children. The effort is a collaboration with Give Back Box, Teach For America, and Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston.

Once the pilot is complete in spring 2020, the team will evaluate a possible expansion of the program for the rest of the world.

The process is simple: all people have to do is collect any loose LEGO bricks, sets, or elements, place them into a cardboard box, and visit www.lego.com/replay to print out a free UPS shipping label. The package will be sent to the Give Back Box facility, where each brick will be sorted, inspected by hand, and given a rigorous cleaning.

This process is possible because LEGO bricks are made from high-quality, durable materials, designed to be used for generations.

Imagine this in Ireland? We're huge fans of those beautiful bricks, so the sooner the better. Well done you yellow-head-making-magicians.

Dave's World also introduces us to the world's loudest bird - the Amazon's white bellbird.

It has shattered the record for the loudest call ever recorded, reaching the same volume as a pneumatic drill or chainsaw . The white bellbird, which lives in the mountains of the north-eastern Amazon, was recorded at 125 decibels, which can be harmful to humans and animals. A chainsaw is about 120dB.
