A big thanks to One Hundred Dollars a Month reader, Holly, who passed along this little gem. Watch the video, it’s totally worth it, but here’s a quick summary, just in case you are pressed for time:
Apparently, Sweden is able to recycle 99 percent of their garbage–through traditional recycling and incineration that is then turned into usable energy. They have gotten so effective at sorting and burning the waste, they’ve started to import other countries’ garbage. Burning the garbage is still falling well below the environmental standards for pollution.
This is pretty freakin’ awesome if you ask me. Humans can be so ingenious sometimes. Now, if we could just get on board here in America.
