Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet!
I grew up in Sweden. One of the “greenest” countries in the world. A country where environmental issues are intrinsic in politics and policy, where the culture is based around “slow-living”, where recycling has become the norm, and where turning waste into energy is a straightforward practice.
By growing up in this environment, sustainability has always come naturally to me. At the age of 8, I picked up a new hobby (and side hustle) – recycling plastic bottles and cans using Sweden’s bottle deposit scheme. At the age of 18, I volunteered at a local garden. And at the age of 22, I decided to give up meat and switch to a plant-based diet.
