The event organizer’s admirable ‘Sustainability Plan’ falls right in line with new green policies implemented by the San Francisco Port Authority , who also mandate that there be no “ intentional release of balloons .” Read the rest of San Francisco America’s Cup to be a Spectacular Zero-Waste Yacht Race Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: america’s cup , compostable products , green events , green sports , low emission fuel , ocean pollution , plastic debris , port authority , sailors for the sea , San Francisco , sustainability plan , Sustainable Events , yacht racing

Comments Off on Lego Invests $500 Million in German Offshore Wind Farm

It’s no surprise we are big LEGO fans here at Inhabitat – the iconic building blocks can be used to create everything from cameras and furniture to apartments and massive cathedrals . Now the toy maker is making headlines again by investing $500 million into green energy. Denmark-based LEGO will buy almost a third of a brand new German offshore wind power project planned by DONG Energy company . The investment will account for 32% of the 277 megawatt Borkum Riffgund wind farm 35 miles off the Northwest coast of Germany. This pricey move will not only help power the German grid, but will hopefully supply nearly all of LEGO’s energy needs with wind power.
