As social media influencers promote brands and people are exposed to more online content than ever before there’s a hunger in society for more and more stuff to own. Whether that’s cosmetics, cars, food items, or even clothes, it’s no secret that producing all of these things is bad for the environment.

The winner was, predictably, Sweden. With a score of  9.2/10, compared to Denmark’s 8.88/10. Finland also joined the leaderboard,  scoring a respectable 85.9. You can read the full report on the website.
