LOOK, NO PLASTIC! HOW A SWEDISH COMPANY IS PROVIDING FRESH DRINKING WATER FROM THE BALTIC SEA
After relatively little snow and rainfall for over two years, Sweden, a country with 100,000 lakes, is tinder dry. Forest fires have been raging in parts of southern Sweden since before the Easter weekend. For the inhabitants of the 30,000 islands of the Stockholm archipelago, the warm dry Spring is a worrying sign that water may be scarce again this summer, the old aquifers and wells on the islands no longer able to cope with the growing demands posed by increasing numbers of visitors and hotter, drier summers.
