Lego Builds the Green Economy with Wind Farm Investment

Remember Lego? It's Taking a Big Stake in Offshore Wind A few months ago my son, Michael, wrote a blog post about Greenpeace's efforts to encourage the iconic Denmark toymaker, Lego, to sever its ties with Asian Pulp and Paper Company. This company had been accused of contributing to the deforestation of the Indonesian rainforest. Apparently, Lego is really getting into the whole green economy concept, as it just made a $534 million investment into a wind farm. The energy from this farm will eventually power all of its operations through 2020. This is the first time that a corporation has taken such a large stake in a wind farm (32%). Check out the new LEGO Friends products which are tailored towards the interest of boys and girls. Now that's what I call building the green economy.
