The Finnish consumer culture is something that really caught my eyes since we arrived! There are a few things that made recycling an important matter to the people here. And not recycling only garbage, but their clothes, household objects and anything that wasn’t suitable to them. There is part of history involved in how they changed their way of living.
It’s quite different from the one we have in Brazil. As well as from many other countries in the world where consumption is endless and industries aim more the profit than the consequences. For today I share how Finland dealt with the difficult times and how this impacted on the countries development! There will be a second part for this post, so stay tunned!
It`s an extra post from the Brazilian Platform I write for. So, click on the link and translate it if you need. I hope you enjoy it!
Já é do conhecimento de muitos que a Finlândia apoia o desenvolvimento sustentável, mas o que também se sabe é o quanto o mundo em regra é consumista.
