“Sweden’s has developed innovative waste-to-energy programs and highly efficient recycling habits, as only four percent of the nation’s waste ends up in landfills.
Sweden manage waste very effectively and then use what remains to partly power their country.
Aside from traditional recycling programs, their waste-to-energy system ensures minimal environmental impact from the country’s waste.
Sweden’s extremely efficient circle of consumption, waste management, and energy output provides the current global population and coming generations inspiration and guidance towards a more sustainable future. They represent one ally of many who understand the need to live sustainably and who fully commit to doing so.”
