Creating a green and sustainable society is one of the key goals for the Swedish people.
Swedes have an affinity with nature, probably because most have access to a countryside cottage and spend as much time there as they can foraging for mushrooms and berries, taking a dip in a lake, relaxing with family or friends and enjoying an unspoilt environment.
This might be the reason that they are such avid recyclers and that sorting household waste in Sweden gives you bragging rights.
It may also be because Sweden has the right of public access which gives everyone the right to roam pretty much anywhere in the countryside as long as they do not harm the environment.
It’s a wonderful right that you can also enjoy when you come to Green Sweden. Throughout the country, you will find protected spots and hiking trails to experience the amazing nature country side.
