Sweden’s environmental sustainability

It should come as no surprise that Sweden is one of the best in the world at looking after the environment.

But did you know exactly how?

One of the primary ways they do this is by dealing with their trash effectively.

They recycle or compost 50% of their waste, incinerate 49% of it, and 1% ends up in landfills.

The incinerated 49% is arguably the most exciting part.

The incinerators also power buses and taxis and provide heating and electricity in homes.

In fact, the Swedes have such efficient systems that they do not have enough trash to power their incinerators.

So, they do the intelligent thing and import trash from various European countries.

With it, Sweden powers its incinerators and provides for its people.
