Need garbage

Ever heard of a country running short on garbage... Sweden just has! Read this.

I was intrigued when I read that Sweden is now importing garbage from other countries. Really?  Then I read the article and was in awe.  Not so much about the sophisticated and complex recycling or garbage disposal process, but most particularly that less than  1% of its household waste has been directed to the landfill.  Now that's amazing.

I suppose it takes more than just a handful of environmentalists or politicians to achieve that.  To get the country's whole population to really be in sync with nature and the surrounding environment is indeed a great achievement.  Understandably the population of Sweden is much less than most of the individual states in India, nonetheless to achieve this high level of awareness and community action, people need to be conscientized and convinced.
