If we are really going to help this planet become a little greener, than we should probably be helping our children to grow up with the idea that alternative energy sources, sustainable management of resources, and efficient use of energy are all just common sense. Let them grow up with solar, and we will find ourselves in a world filled with solar. Let them grow up in a world filled with organic foods and eco-friendly products, and they will continue that trend. So why not start by teaching your favorite youngster about solar with this solar-operated helicopter? The propeller will keep on spinning, as long as there is a light source, and you will be free of your AA batteries forever.
