As far as saving the planet goes, Sweden are certainly doing their part. They recently announced that they’re going to be investing $546 million with the aim to become the first fossil fuel free country in the world, and their recycling program puts the rest of us to shame as well.
It’s so prolific that the country barely has any waste any more at all, and actually has to import garbage from the UK, Italy, Norway and Ireland to keep their amazing waste-to-energy (WTE) program running.
The Scandinavian country prioritises sustainability at government level – for obvious reasons that much of the rest of the world can’t apparently see – and recycles 1.5 billion bottles and cans per year. Given that the population is just under 10 million, this is a stunning figure.
