My rabbit ate plastic? what now?!

My rabbit chewed on his little hut inside his cage,and he ate a part of it.
Its plastic,and I know rabbits cant puke,and I doubt they can digest plastic..
So now what do I do? will he be okay? or should I take him to the vet?

and why did he do this? He has plenty of food.
