Hats off to Sweden for being so efficient with their garbage to energy recycling campaign that they are needing to look beyond their borders for other’s trash. This is so exciting.
Imagine a world where pollution is a non-issue, cities are pristine, healthy environments to live in, and little to no entanglements from discarded trash injures wildlife or clogs the oceans. In Sweden, this is almost a reality, yet it’s causing a paradoxical predicament for the recycle-happy country that relies on waste to heat and provide electricity to hundreds of thousands of homes.
What a nice problem to have. I would love it if we could commit to such programs here in the good ole US of A. Until then perhaps we could ship them our garbage. (Just kidding..)
