In an amazing step forward, the uber famous toy company LEGO has started shipping fully functional Wind turbine kits. It is another of their attempts to go green, a movement by LEGO that is taking the entire world by storm. They have previously promised to make their LEGO material plant-based, so there is literally no pollution that would be caused due to these toys. No toxic plastic. And this time, with the wind turbine kits, the company will also impart important information to kids. This is a part of their program to create all toys made of sustainable resources by 2030.
Containing 826 pieces that make up a 3-foot tall wind turbine, with a working motor, replaceable blades, and battery box, LEGO has put in a lot of effort into this. Plus, they have also put in a tiny house beside the wind turbine, coupling that with two mini LEGOmen, and a LEGOdog. All these bricks are made of plants, so no plastic material was included. The entire kit was developed in a partnership with Vestas, one of the leading sustainable energy suppliers to about 80 countries. The main purpose of this toy is to mix fun with knowledge and let’s just say, this knowledge is extremely important.
The VP of Environmental Responsibility at LEGO, Tim Brooks has committed to making positive changes in the environment. He wants to tackle climate change in their own way – one of which is by using sustainable products in their packaging and actual toys. He further mentioned that this wind turbine kit is an important step taken in that direction, an ambition that would be fulfilled.

We have become aware that plastic is a terrible thing for all of us and the planet. But what can be done about it? We can do something about it, of course, but is that enough? The answer is simple – no. Unless the major corporations take a move against plastic, we are almost helpless. And it is their corporate social responsibility to do something about it. Out of the many companies that are present in the market, LEGO has started a movement. We have all been through that LEGO phase. We made our own buildings and became engineers in our imaginary worlds. LEGO pieces were made of oil-based plastic. Now, we can’t really blame them. It was cheap and we did not know much about the harmfulness of plastic back then.
The nation’s young people have been given front-row seats for an unfolding police drama that is rated R for profanity, violence and adult content. In Arizona, a 7-year-old girl watched panic-stricken as a state trooper pointed his gun at her and her father during a traffic stop and reportedly threatened to shoot her father in the back (twice) based on the mistaken belief that they were driving a stolen rental car. In Oklahoma, a 5-year-old boy watched as a police officer used a high-powered rifle to shoot his dog Opie multiple times in his family’s backyard while other children were also present. The police officer was mistakenly attempting to deliver a warrant on a 10-year-old case for someone who hadn’t lived at that address in a decade.
