If you are interested in hearing me blab more about my experiment with the fridge, you can check me out here, here, and here. If you want to read about the other things hubby and I are doing to reduce our carbon footprint, check out any categories that catch your interest in the navigation bar on the right.
If you aren't up for unplugging your fridge but want to use yours more efficiently, you can try the following:
- Keep your fridge 2/3 to 3/4 full at all times
- Keep your leftover food in glass instead of plastic - it holds the cold better
- In the winter make ice in pop bottles outside and put them in your fridge - your fridge won't have to work as hard to keep your food cool (if you live in a place that is cold enough)
- In the winter put your left-over food outside (covered of course) for a few hours so that it is cold when you put it in your fridge
For those who didn't catch the interview, it's up on the Ottawa morning website under 'Extreme green couple...'.
For those who didn't hear it - sorry I didn't let you know about it. I actually didn't know when it was going to air so haven't heard it myself yet!
