One would find it hard to disagree that 2020 was an interesting year. For us in the UK, the top highlights were, without a doubt, Covid-19 Coronavirus and Brexit. While most of us are still attempting to stabilise from the shocks of these two, especially the former topic, there is also some positive to cheer such as the renewed focus on Sustainability and Environment to ensure a more sustainable and environment-friendly economic recovery. At an individual’s level, possessing the awareness of environmental issues, living a sustainable, green lifestyle, seems to be a worthy donation to our planet!
What is a green lifestyle?
Green living is just a modern version of the lifestyle our ancestors have had lived hundreds of years ago. It involves an upgrade of the “natural version” to every single component of your lifestyle, whether it’s about the dress you wear 24/7, the accessories you use in your kitchen or the gifts you give to your loved ones on their special occasions such as birthday, anniversary etc. To save our planet from environmental damage, one must avail every opportunity to do so, especially those opportunities which help others learn about the green lifestyle, such as the opportunity of giving Eco-friendly gifts. Takeaway a bunch of ideas for eco-friendly gifts from this blog!
Why should one keep Eco-friendly gift ideas?
The gift ideas seem like the promotion of the green lifestyle. The better the gift ideas will be, the more people will get inspired by the Eco-friendly lifestyle. Your friend might love the gift you gave her / him just because it not only serves as a present, but as a great favour to our planet too.

Wind Energy Learner’s Kit:
Historically, windmills served the purpose of grinding grains and pumping water. In today’s world, wind energy has come into a positive use as it produces mechanical energy through wind turbines, which will then generate electrical energy. In short, wind as a sustainable resource can produce electricity with the help of wind turbines. These wind turbines, typically with three blades on the top of a long tower follow the direction of the wind and harness its energy. It has been playing a major role to save our environment since 1888 and would serve as a source of electricity in the upcoming decades too. Historically located on vast countryside land, most large wind turbine farms are now built offshore in the sea and their electricity is transmitted to land via sub-sea power cables.
Our Wind energy learner’s kit would be a perfect gift for the kids of this generation, which would not only make them aware of its importance but also help them understand the technical aspects of the process. This small kit contains mini-sized components of a basic wind turbine machine, which on setting up illustrates the concept of this technology.
