Going cold turkey on my fridge

my footprint is too big

CRIPES, it’s a new year! I’ve got to do something about my carbon footprint. Depending on which calculator I use, it’s been between three tonnes and seven tonnes CO₂ for a couple of years now, and that’s not good enough.

So I’ve decided to try and take refrigeration out of the picture. That would be difficult enough even if I was living in the cold climes of the Northern hemisphere, but it’s not so easy if you’re living in Thailand where the temperature never drops below boiling!

At the moment my fridge is full of my usual stuff – tofu, vegetables, pots of custard, cooked chickpeas, water, fruit, garlic etc. – and I’m worried that much of it will spoil if I just switch the power off and start living without refrigeration.

But I’m going to give it a shot, starting tomorrow!
