Sweden wants your garbage, but not so fast...

July 19, 2017

The highly covered and often revered Swedish recycling program has become a point of conversation and controversy and frankly... we don't know what to think.

Coming off the back of Coconutgate 2017, a new topic has hit internet: how good is the Swedish recycling system really?

There was a time when Swedens method of collecting, burning, and filtering waste was seen as such a good method, the world was considering packing up and sending our waste to the country in hopes that we may have found a solution to waste management that would clean up the planet, provide us with clean air, and become a source of fuel.

Sounds pretty amazing, right?

Well, turns out we may have been a little overeager, and as of late many environmentalist such as David Suzuki and Tom Szaky have pointed out that the Swedish method of waste management may not do as much good as we'd hoped...

You can read all about it here, and here, then let me know what you think!

Is this new method of recycling really upcycling, or are we doing more harm than good?
