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.”
