Denmark is also one of the most environmentally conscious countries in the EU, if not the world. It's a country that, perhaps due to its small size, isn't afraid to try new approaches to things like ecology. For example, nearly every consumable liquid in Denmark comes in one of 5 types of glass bottles. These bottle styles are universal because of the high deposit one has to put down on said bottle, thereby enforcing that nearly everyone will return or recycle their glass bottles. This has been a sore spot for their entry into the EU, because upon joining it, they are required to import certain items from other EU members, including quaffables whose packaging is not as environmentally conscious.

They are also pioneers in wind energy, geothermal energy and alternate combustion energy generation technologies and export a large amount of the electricity they produce to other european nations.
