Top 10 Cleanest Countries In the World
The Top Ten Cleanest Countries In the World
Sweden is the country I live in and it is the cleanest and it has other great countries around it that are very clean as well like Finland, Norway, Switzerland, and Denmark. By far this area of the world is the cleanest in trash, crime, and just being beautiful.
Wish I could come to Sweden Singapore is clean and so is Sweden but unlike Singapore they resolve issues peacefully not publicly caning somebody unless your a masochist or a sadist it's not a nice place to live they're harsh and take things too far and what the hell with U.S. being on this list I know you have pride for your country even though they're in national debt and police are asses with weapons who still think its civilized to hit a smaller being than you who can't defend themselves (children) that's great who also take ride or die together too seriously when they allow Mexico to send refugees to come over here when we can't even take care of our own people like our economy doesn't already suck trying to find jobs for just the people that live here already but no lets bring more people in instead of handling our own problems first and then handling others but with all that said I would rather live in the U.S. than Singapore and I HATE IT HERE!
Yes its true I live in sweden and in my school we clean the natur
Sweden should be number 1 why the 6th I went to Sweden it's so clean and peace too but Sweden is more cleaner than Colombia Colombia is not that clean so I say Sweden should be the 1st or 2nd or 3rd
Norway must be higher than Sweden. It is way cleaner and more sanitary than Sweden.
I went to a music festival, they literately checked the porter potty after each person used it, to see if it needed to be cleaned, and if you dropped trash on the grass, it would literally get picked up within 5 minutes!
Never been, but all the sources tell me its by far the cleanest. Takes the number one spot for countries using renewable energy
Because Norway is the cleanest country
Really? Are you kidding me?
Singapore is like the World's most cleanest country.
Even though I'm from Singapore, you HAVE to see the laws of Singapore. I'm not being bias.
Singapore is the cleanest country anywhere you should read the law book if you don't agree. we watched someone get arrested for throwing gum on the ground and taking durian onto a train!
Come on! There is a law that says you can't buy a gum in Singapore thus can't throw it on ground!
Wasn't disappointed. It is truly one of the cleanest places I have visited.
I don't want to be mean, but India is one of the dirtiest countries in the world. If you look at the back side of the Taj Mahal there is a river with SO MUCH GARBAGE! In India and in most poor countries there is an extreme amount of garbage.
But the good news is that the current prime minister of India
Narendra Modi has sold his Suite that cost around 1 million British Pounds. He is using that money to clean the streets of India.
So India is getting cleaner. (Unless the Muslims are overpopulating and taking over the country than India will be a dump! )
I am an Indian, I was actually born in British India.
Whenever I walk around, I see garbage almost everywhere. Once I saw a pile of garbage on FIRE and nobody seemed to care. India is pretty high in this list. I think it should be much lower.
How on Earth did India qualify in this list? If you visit Kolkata, Mumbai and New Delhi which are the three major densely populated cities in India. Garbage is present in every block and every street as well as it's common to see people publicly defecate near the curbs. Sure, India is set to become a superpower from their constant economic growth but it will be the most populated country in the world thanks to the high birth rates.
What! India is ranked higher than Germany, England etc... seems that the person doesn't know anything about India prepared this list...
WAY too many US fanboys here!
I am an American, and I want to get out of here ASAP! I want to move to either any Scandinavian country, or Singapore!
With the already existing problems, USA is FAR from tidy, from being the second leading polluter, to the countless people smoking! To the garbage EVERYWHERE, to dickheads throwing away cigarettes ON THE ROAD! To people not cleaning up dog dung, to alleys with respectable amounts of trash, to the smelly parts of the cities, everything in america is a BOMB with numerous problems!
However, I really do like my country but its far from being clean or even good. Iceland DESERVES to be at least number 3!
It is perhaps hard to comment generally on the USA's cleanliness because it is so vast and different states have a different attitude to cleanliness. LA is by far one of the dirtiest and most disappointing places I have visited within the US. I felt mucky all the time I was there, which to say it has some of the most affluent inhabitants is remarkable! New York however should feel awash with the city's pollution and dirt, and in fairness there is a garbage problem but it doesn't feel as murky as LA or Las Vegas for example. The East Coast - places like Bar Harbour feel very clean and their councils take great pride in the appearance and overall cleanliness, but other states like Michigan, Nebraska feel generally like more attention could be paid to things like refuse, garbage and how the shop fronts appear for example. Texas is polar in appearance - from really poor to really affluent depending on which part you go to. Not the cleanest country though generally!
The problem is that people in the US are more individualistic than people of Japan. This means that in Japan, people love their country so much they do whatever to keep it clean. America is different.
However, individualism and freedom in America are no longer as extreme as maybe in 1900. If you think America is dirty today, you should see us in 1900. In 1900, pollution was a huge issue along with crowded tenements, migration crisis (immigrants were literally flooding this place faster than we could handle them), lack of a sewage system (so the streets were really dirty), and all sorts of corruption problems.
If you don't like the politics today, get in a time machine and go back to 1900, and you'll appreciate America for what it has today.
Some areas are clean and other areas are really dirty. I am from the us and people who want to come has got to learn a little about it
Most of the Japanese places, including the public toilet, are very clean and orderly!
More better roads and streets. Beautiful houses whenever I pass to their houses, I can see Beautiful garden and arranged things.. Strict country too, and intelligent people..
What why isn't Japan number 1 it one of the cleanest countries in the world
It is a rubbish thing really. Japan is more clean country than america. when I have seen American slums they were worst, but when I have seen Japanese slums on internet. I have seen Japan don't have any slum.
Canada is a really clean country I lived there for 9 years and had a great experience the air smelled fresh and clean and there was barely any trash on the streets and sidewalks the neighborhoods looked super clean and peaceful there are so many reasons why Canada is one of the cleanest country in there world.
Canada s the most cleanest country cause there is rules and fines for littering and there is a enviromental resource team that cleans up all the litter and make all the country clean so not a doubt CANADA IS #1
There's still piles of garbage everywhere. Even if there it is illegal, people will still litter.
Canada should be number one
I wish to get my visa and immigrate it.
Iceland is more than beautiful! It has 100% clean water and almost no one is smoking!
Iceland is very clean
The only pollution they have is volcanoes and small amount of car fumes
The population of Iceland is really low, which makes it a really clean country.
Why is this 12 this should be number 1 it is the cleanest country in the world and it's so beautiful but is low the population and young beautiful people too!
Every inch of the country is so spotless, even the water is so clean and so clear like crystals. The environment looks so pristine and flawless, even there was an article from the magazine I have read that suggested everyone who want to improve their body health to go to Switzerland for vacation. There are so many researches and reports said that Switzerland is the cleanest country on earth with the best environmental records.
I have visited Switzerland, and found it very clean. No garbage anywhere. I didn't notice people peeing in the footpath even once (unlike here in India). It is ridiculous that Switzerland is ranked 10th, while India is ranked No. 2.
I traveled Switzerland a while back and everything was so clean, it was quite a shock for me personally because I knew it would be clean but not that clean. Public transport and roads are clean, water is clean, bathrooms are clean. They have a very good waste removal system for recycling
My home country, I love it.
Paris is has the highest population density capital city, so it cannot be as clean as a village, and if you have time to visit the non crowded areas and streets you will discover a clean Paris. All the other 36,000 cities and villages are clean as well as the splendid scenery.
Well, it's really cleaner than we were excepted, even cleaner that most of European countries we have visited, especially Southern and Eastern Europe. Maybe the only place a bit dirty is the touristic Paris. But as soon you leave the touristic areas of Paris, it's really clean. The country side, villages, ocean coast are without any trash.
France is a clean country, large cities, especially Paris and Nice (the most touristic ones) are the less clean, because of the high density of population (Paris is the most densely populated European capital city). All the rest of France, cities, villages, country side, beaches are clean.
Stop your stereotypes, concerning French, that's obsolete and so boring and so easy to repeat always the same insanities.
Vienna is so clean even though it's a capital, also they literally mop/sweep all of the roads. If you litter you will be attacked by about 100 people
In my opinion Austria is the most beautiful and cleanest country of the world.
You could eat from the streat
Germany 22? I went there and it was super clean everywhere.
I am from Germany and can tell you that the city of Hamburg is going to be car free by 2020.
Shame in you people to put Germany at number I while India number 2. You don't seem to know what real beauty and cleanest are.
They use more renewable energy than any other country on Earth.
That is BS we have so much garbage on the street, you are a liar. Every morning there are cleaning cars going through all streets in the town and villages, and the streets and roads. If there has been garbage what you've seen, that is garbage that tourists has thrown out from their car window. This whole list is a joke, has Sweden on Place 1, go look at Sweden, see what we see. Know for a fact that Island is the worlds cleanest country, and Switzerland is too. Here you can see this list what is accurate list of Cleanest air in the world.
Sweden is in no way cleaner than Finland.
Finland is in the top 5 over 75% of Finland is forest and it is growing every year it invests heavily in renewables, England's forests have been obliterated, India has serious problems with pollution, China releases over 3.8 billion tonnes of coal into the atmosphere each year, France has done nuclear testing, the oil industry in Canada destroys its forest and natural beauty, columbia has massive slums. This list is a joke
I have been there! It's the best. Finland has the kindest people in the world.
My vote is for Finland
Denmark is a very clean country. They have trashbins all over the city of Copenhagen & we saw people hired to collect trash many times - Both in the city, stations and parks.. So good!
Greenland is a part of Denmark and the actual Denmark is well kept itself.
Where is the garbage? I can't see it ;
How is Italy behind this.
I was hoping it would be at the top ten at least. it is a clean, sustainable, beautiful country. it is lovely!
How is this so low? I live here and it's great!
I think people are just voting for their own countries. How are countries like China and India above New Zealand?
Better than the usa
Yeah maybe some business people throwing cards on street but did you see a lot of it? Well nope, the public market is organized well, we just can't take off out the world that there are many bad humans..
Very cool and clean country
Korea should at least number 4
I love South Korea!
Obviously who so ever conciled this list has no knowledge whatsoever of Australia and has never been there it has some of the harshest littering laws in the world with fines starting at approx $300 for just dropping a cigarette on the ground up to hundreds of thousands for companies caught illegally dumping waste people place Singapore as a clean country I have been to the back streets away from the tourist pathways don't be fooled whilst in Australia a country 100's of thousands times larger you can go even to industrial areas and be shocked by how clean and tidy the surrounds are so people who do lists like this should maybe visit the countries prior to going there really India is cleaner than Australia wow!
Sydney has sewers with clear water. Cannot argue with that.
Australia IS CLEANER THAN CLEAN. The only super unclean thing in Australia that I've seen is my bedroom (i live there) Really cool country, and the beaches are clean as hell, I can surf for hours
Australia is a continent first before it is a country.
Australia is huge with very small population of wealthy, beautiful, and sexy anglo-saxons who are blessed with this beautiful continent. Aussies have done an excellent job but they need to make sure their environment and landscape stays pristine and beautiful.
The strict immigration laws is one of the reasons the continent is still underdeveloped, which is why it is still beautiful in its organic and natural beauty.
God bless the Aussies and their commitment for a greener, cleaner and sexy continent.
China doesn't deserve to even be on this list, Is so dirty
China is much more cleaner than India for sure.
Clean places are actually pretty clean but dirty places are pretty dirty ill admit it overall its pretty clean inside most buildings
India is top 4? this is the best joke of the year
Compared to places like India really... England should not be this far down, but then to be fair there is a real split between the really nice areas and the really bad ones if people have looked at the bad ones then they will have thought it was vile! Parts of Central London for example are really dirty especially when the bin men are on strike! But then go to the Cotswolds and it's a different thing altogether!
I'm from England (UK) this is a joke.
We have filthy derelict places.
People not using these bags to pick up the dog mess.
Come on guys..England is so immaculate
England have many clean places
What the HELL. Colombia IS AWFUL. GET A LIFE!
They're not talking about the politics or what goes on there, Colombia is actually a gorgeous country you bunch of bigot pigs they're talking about the cleanliness of the country and what they do to maintain it that way.
Dude they murder people with police in front of them
Colombia is not a clean country. As you can see on internet slums are worst.
Not racist but all Spanish countries should not be on this list but Spain.
Mexico is not that clean. I go there every year and I always see trash and glass washed up by the beach. And even in the beach. But I still love Mexico.
This country isn't clean (New Mexico city is sinking into its on waste)
Mexico doesn't deserve to even be on this list, Is so dirty people throw trash everywhere in the streets dirty water still not clean. USA is more cleaner than Mexico.
What the HELL. Mexico IS AWFUL. GET A LIFE! Mexico is not a clean country. As you can see on internet villages cities slums are worst.
Beautiful. I did not once see any garbage here for the week I spent in Cuba.
I feel they are just putting down random countries
Cuba is surprisingly VERY clean.
Even though its very poor, its surprisingly very clean :O
Yeahh! I'm american but honestly PHilippines is one of the most cleanest country in the world..
I like the place because its home and the atmosphere is much more fun than most places. I'm filipino and honestly when we brag about stuff we only mention the best places we can find and think of. no one even bothers mentioning the bad side of our country, you know all the corruption and the dodgy urban slums. I know we have take pride and stand for our country and I do but this is reality and seriously we aren't the best country in the world stop saying we are.
Phillipines is so clean especially in davao top 4 in the cleanest city in the world
Yup maybe you're underrating Philippines because in terms of Power, it's one of the least but I tell you guys, it's one of the BEST. One of the cleanest, friendly, hospitable, amazing, adventurous city in the whole world.
Slovenia seems to be completely overlooked in most of these lists since they are based on people voting (hence India being fourth here at the time I write this) But any legitimate list will tell you it is undoubtedly one of the cleanest countries on the planet.
Slovakia Slovenia Which one is the most clean country
You can say that sweden or other countryier are clean but Slovenija is the cleanest countrz in the world.
Slovenija is the most clean and beutiful country.
Underrated cleanest country ever! Very very clean!
Que? han puesto a mexico y a Colombia mas arriba! NO TIENE SENTIDOO! Y como puede ser la india el tercero? es un país superpoblado e industrializado, es obvio que esta sucísimo!
I bet they put this here because it's lots of ice and snow, but that doesn't make a place dirty
I think this country deserves to be much higher up, the place only has like 30,000 people and is biggest island in the world.
Green land is the one of the cleanest places in the world.
Not a country...still very clean
I visited Turkey Iran Pakistan and India in 2015 I thought Pakistan wouldn't be the best of places (I just wanted to pass through to get to India) but was amazed by the cleanliness of the country, the people were so hospitable that I stayed their for a extra 3 days.
This is funny because Pakistan is significantly cleaner in general than India which is at top ten. Where's the logic here...
Come and explore...Most beautiful and amazing places
This list is joke because there is garbage in some area of Pakistan not anywhere
It's a openly racist and dirty country that likes to beat animals, they dig big holes in the ground to hide garbage.
Hmm everyone knows there responsibility, more greener, higher in tourism industry, not much animal cruelty, no racism, alive each moment, good at communicating, smile always, believe in science, good notoriety, no corruption, everyone is beautiful with a perfect smile and the mauritian girls are too sexy :p, no economic problem, everyone is a teacher as we learn from kids to elders, animals to insects...Generally speaking it is the world topper country and I am lucky to have it. :) :D

They respect forests and have great nature.
I used to live there now live in America

There are bareley any factories, or any pollution causing factors. And many people walk, and use trams.
Small country... Naturally beautiful and clean
Populated places are only dirty. others are clean
SO confused the UAE isn't in the top 5 cleanest. Ok parts of Dubai are notably dirtier than others but then everything is relative because the majority of the tourist Dubai is so opulent it is breathtaking and that has to maintain a high level of cleanliness. As soon as something gets tatty they just replace it with something newer and shinier!
Dubai is very clean
United Arab Emirates was more clean than the United States
It's the most economy place in the world because there is so much construction
Saudi Arabia is very clean. I recently went there and I used to lay on the ground. It's so clean that I used to offer salat without anything underneath me.
I lived in Saudi Arabia for like 10 years I'm 10 years old and it's like my real country in my opinion Saudi Arabia is clean has malls clean Streets in say it's the 11 or 14 cleanest country
Saudi Arabia is very great country having clean and big roads!
Yes, the people there are very clean.
Iran is great and is one of world powers!
They are really mean to women!
Clean country in the world
All they have is sand.
