1000 Flowers for the Planet - #248 Live Without the Beer Fridge
Oh dear! This will not be a popular Flower suggestion. Many an Australian garage has a beer fridge in it – the men need their fridge full of beer, ready for any occasion. However, that fridge is costing the household, and the planet, a whole heap. Unless you have people around every night of the week who drink a fridge full of beverages, then do you really need that second fridge for drinks? For daily usage you should be able to fit the amount you would drink into your regular fridge, and simply replenish as you go. A bottle of beer can get cold enough while you’re asleep – it will be there when you need it the following evening.
Eliminating the second fridge from your household will save a lot of electricity and therefore put a lot more money back into your hands. The energy savings will reduce the amount of finite resources being used, reduce carbon emissions and help the planet breather a little easier.
