The 10 Cleanest Countries
 in the World for 2016

Who doesn’t want to travel?

Everyone does! And most of us have a few selected destinations in our bucket list that we would give anything to get a trip to! As for 2017 we are selecting these 10 countries as they proudly represent them as the cleanest countries of the world -

1. Colombia

Very surprisingly, at no. 1 we have this South American country with all it’s tropical beauty and the crown of being the drug capital of the world. One of the main reasons behind this title is, the Colombians use natural resources as pesticides rather than harmful chemical ones. Well deserved!

2. Iceland


Our last year’s crown prince is one step down this year and in number 2 position. Quitely justified as this nation gets 80% of it’s energy from geothermal and hydro sources. Needless to say Iceland is the cleanest country in Europe where they have no shortage of really clean countries.

3. Austria


At number 3, we have Austria. A central European country that is very well known for it’s rich culture, green allies and baroque architecture. Eco-friendly waste management methods, introduced by the government, keep this land as clean as you could have possibly imagined.

4. Mauritius
