WIND POWER

Identity - - SUSTAINABILITY -

Dan­ish toy man­u­fac­turer LEGO has linked up with tur­bine man­u­fac­turer Ves­tas to release a model tur­bine set that fea­tures bricks made from sus­tain­able sug­ar­cane.

The 826-piece model, which is al­most a me­tre tall, also in­cludes ad­justable wind blades, a wood­land house, three ser­vice­men Minifig­ures and a LEGO dog, along with new ‘ Plants from Plants’ spruce trees.

The in­clu­sion of these el­e­ments is part of the first steps in the LEGO Group’s am­bi­tion to use sus­tain­able ma­te­ri­als in prod­ucts by 2030 and pack­ag­ing by 2025.

Tim Brooks, Vice Pres­i­dent, En­vi­ron­men­tal Re­spon­si­bil­ity at LEGO Group said: “We strive to make a pos­i­tive im­pact on the en­vi­ron­ment and are com­mit­ted to cli­mate ac­tion and to the use of sus­tain­able ma­te­ri­als in prod­ucts and pack­ag­ing.

“This wind tur­bine cel­e­brates our first steps in bring­ing these am­bi­tions to life and we hope it will in­spire builders to learn about re­new­able en­ergy.”
