Helsinki one of the cleanest capital cities on Earth

The British daily compiled a list of cities worldwide that contain the fewest traces of PM 2.5 – tiny pollution particles that measure two and a half microns or less in width. Similar to its neighbouring cities in the Nordic region, Helsinki’s enthusiasm for pedal power helped it achieve a high ranking. According to the article, “The city now has 2 400 odd miles of cycle lanes, which have been enthusiastically embraced by locals.” The Telegraph also noted Helsinki’s ambitious plan to make motor vehicle ownership obsolete by 2025. At the top of the list was Stockholm, followed by Wellington and Canberra. (Good News From Finland)
