The toy maker Lego said it will not work with the oil company Shell. Its $110 million partnership with Shell is over. Shell sold Lego toys in its gas stations. Lego saw a Greenpeace video. It showed Lego people and animals covered in oil. There was an oil spill. At the end, the Shell flag was flying. It is Greenpeace's most-watched video.

A million people asked Lego to stop working with Shell. Greenpeace was very happy that Lego stopped. It thanked Lego. Lego said it did not want people to think it was bad. Shell wanted to drill in the Arctic last year. It stopped because of problems. It does not know if it will drill in 2015.
