Environmentalists are de-fridging
, reports The New York Times. More people are deciding to get rid of the kitchen’s biggest energy hog in an attempt to reduce their carbon footprint — though quite a few greenies, including myself, still rely on their refrigerators — EnergyStar model refrigerators, that is.
De-fridgers cope by getting coolers, storing perishables outside in the winter, and when desperate, getting a mini-fridge. Many, as you can imagine, have had to change their cooking and eating habits to adabt — though these new habits, like cooking from scratch more often, sound like healthy ones for the most part.
