We are all guilty of polluting our atmosphere and dear mother earth. If only Captain Planet was here to save us all from the ultimate doom that we will certainly face due to our unhealthy ways. It would surprise you to know that there are only a few places left on earth which are pollution free these days. In all of the rest of the places, either there is lack of clean air or lack of a clean environment or lack of clean water which is nothing but a tragedy. We thought maybe we should bring you a list of ten places with no pollution which is to say countries where the cleanliness percentage is way higher and almost perfect in today’s world. May be if you visit one of these places simply out of intrigue to see what a clean environment looks like, you might bring back a little more will with you and maybe if all work together we can still save this planet.
The first place on our list of pollution free places is Singapore. It would do well if you could keep in mind that no place can have absolutely no pollution because that is unnatural. However, places like Singapore have such a high percentage of clean air (68.6%) and clean drinking water (77.8 %) that we cannot help but admire. Singapore lies in the Asian Continent and as far as safety and cleanliness is concerned, the city has its own standing. Apart from the fact that the administration of the city is extremely pro-cleanliness, the city also boasts a high class lifestyle with amazing opportunities for education, success and progress. It is not wrongly titled as one of the cleanest cities in the world.
9. Freiburg in Germany
The title for this years’ cleanest city in the world goes to Freiburg in Germany which is, thus, the next city on our list of places with no pollution. This fact is further highlighted by the recorded percentages of Air, Drinking Water and Overall Quality of Life in the city which stand at 87.5%, 50% and 100% respectively. Imagine, the quality of life being one hundred percent free of pollutants. The people of this city also enjoy a generous serving of green mountains and natural landscapes which further adds to the feeling of wellbeing. The city enjoys a very good standard of living and this adds to one of the many reasons that this place is as good as any as far as tourism is concerned.
8. Curitiba in Brazil
The next city that we have on our list is situated in Brazil. The most amazing thing about this place is that the people seemed to have become one with the environment of the city, changing their ways and lifestyles to blend in with the harmony of nature and beauty that prevails there. It has been recorded Air in Curitiba is 63% pollution free, drinking water is a whopping 75% pollution free and the quality of life is 62.5% pollution free. What is even more amazing especially for residents is that the city has lovely weather all the year round and it must surely add to the over all happiness the people feel while living in such clean spaces.
7. Oslo in Norway
The next place with no pollution will take you all the way to Norway and particularly to Oslo. You might be really surprised to know that despite the fact that this city has a relatively high cost of living and the population is fairly dense especially if you compare it with that of Curitiba (which has just 2 million people), the city is very clean and free of pollution. The recorded percentages are proof enough with the air being 68.6% pollution free and the drinking water being 95.8% pollution free.
6. Melbourne in Australia
The next city on our list of places with no pollution is none other than the beautiful Melbourne, a city known for its gazillion travel destinations. As far as leading the economy and being a financial hub slash giant is concerned, this city totally takes the lead. In the year 2013, this city was named the most livable city in the world. And rightfully so we believe as the air is 83.6% pollution free, drinking water is 84.8% pollution free and the quality of life is also at a whopping 86.25% as far as being free from pollutants is concerned and a healthy environment is sought.
5. Helsinki in Finland

4. Bern in Switzerland
We are all aware that Switzerland, apart from being one of the happiest places, is also known for its amazing tourist attractions mostly consisting of natural landscapes and green mountains. Bern, the next place on our list, is the capital of Switzerland and is squeaky clean. The city is in keeping with the country’s drive for a pollution free environment and that is exactly what you get. It is a place where the air, drinking water, and overall quality of life is 81.5%, 100%, and 83.5% free of pollutants and lethal bio hazards. It is an amazing achievement indeed.
3. Honolulu in Hawaii
In this next case we have Honolulu, another place that has no pollution although in this case, constant billowing winds and generous rain falls contribute a lot towards the clean environment. The government and the people certainly play their parts and the place, being a wonderful tourist spot as it is, is filled with fresh air and water both of which are more than 90% free of pollution.
2. Calgary in Canada
Next up we have Calgary in Canada. One of the most fascinating things about this place is that the entire city is known for its exotic way of life but even then they have managed a city with almost no pollution at all. You might be further impressed to know that Calgary has its own water purification system and that the system purifies almost one trillion litres of water everyday. It isn’t as if people are not living in the city, it is just that everyone plays their part to make quality of life in the city almost 88% pure.
1. Ifrane in Morocco
Last but certainly not the least on our list of places with no pollution we have Ifrane in Morocco. What adds to the beauty of this pollution free place and also becomes one of the reasons for the place being pollution free is the fact that it is a ski resort and therefore does not have pollutant emitting factories and industries. So there you have it, that is the reason Ifrane has air, drinking water and a quality of life that are all 100% free of pollution.
