Can you live without a fridge? Some people do. The New York Times wrote an article about a number of people who are choosing to ditch their energy consumption —even Energy Star consumption— and go Fridge-less...How do they do it? They simply use a cooler and fill with ice. While our parents use the garage to keep drinks cold, this is one step we're not sure we could take. And we're a New Yorker who eats out 99% of the time. What would happen if we couldn't just open the freezer and dig into a carton of Ben and Jerry's every now and then?
We remember that No Impact Man Colin Beavan did this, although it didn't work out so well for them. They ended up bringing back the fridge, but not the freezer.
Could you do it?
