Hi, I'm writing an article about educational, useful toys and looking for educational and eco-friendly toys for kids that can also be used to explain diffucult science issues at school, just like in Montessori schools. I found LEGO Green Instructions and I need more examples like this. What's this all about?
https://greeninstructions.com are eco-friendly pdf tutorials on how to build eco-friendly structures out of your old LEGO sets - for example, convert a sport car into a bike and a coal mine into a windmill from a wind turbine. During play you can teach kids in class or as a parent, at home about renewable energy sources, including wind, nuclear and solar. Both the manufacturers and LEGO company offices are already running solely on renewables and getting rid of plastic, replacing it with other biodegradable materials (plastic made from sugar cane).

Do you know of other examples of manufacturers and brands of children's toys like this? I prefer brands whose statements and actions are consistent and transparent for the clients.
