[Mika @ Lund] Eco living from Sweden - December 2020

Today's Sweden blog is about a facility called FIXA-TILL operated by the city of Lund.  It is a facility that offers rental services such as tools and sewing machines. I love this concept and wish it can be done in Japan too!

Today's blog is about your own “Carbon footprint”. Carbon footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with all the activities of a person or other entities. It includes direct emissions as well as emissions required to produce the electricity associated with goods and services consumed. In Sweden, they have apps that can calculate your carbon footprints!

Today's Sweden blog is about how they have been shifting more and more to paperless in offices.  Apparently all notifications and billing documents that have been sent by mail are now digital!  And these documents are delivered within one app.  How is this done?  We'd really love Japan to be more paperless too...
