Water consumption is a huge issue at present. The environmental issue is a hot topic and only a few days ago the world’s largest environmental demonstration took place all thanks to our Swedish superstar, Greta Thunberg.

Not only has Greta made an impression on us Swedes, but she had kids and teenagers demonstrating all over the world. She has become a true environmental hero and she is now the spokesperson for our future generation. Greta is inspiring and educating, and there’s not a single person who can’t learn something from Greta.

In order to save our planet, we need to stop flying as much as we do today. Ever heard of Skype-meetings? We need to stop driving to work, when we in fact might as well take the bike. There is a number of things that we can do to reduce the way we affect the environment. Sometimes the biggest polluters is in our fridge.

We have listed a few of the most common foods in peoples fridges that makes a big environmental footprint without anyone knowing. We call them “the hidden environmental polluters”.
