Another aspect of environmental care in Sweden is a sustainable consumption.
I live surrounded by the second-hand shops with used clothes, furniture, utensil and even household equipment. There are several places in the city where flea markets and garage sales take place; in Sweden they are called 'Loppis'. Such places are popular among the Swedes, because on the one hand, one can find rare and unique items at a low price, and on the other hand, such way people prevent the process of reproduction, and implicitly lower the amount of trash throwing out.
If you can't wait to visit a city of eco-future, then here you go, Vastra Hamnen district in Malmö. Former industrial area on the outskirts of the city is now an urbanist dream, and, more importantly, there are no harmful pollution of any sort.
