You know the saying “the older the better”? The guys at Time To Change came up with a fun and green variation to the theme. We’re not talking about wine in this case, but fridges and freezers!
The idea is simple. Seeking the UK’s oldest working fridge and giving the winner a new energy efficient model. This is to highlight their campaign to encourage the replacement of 15.4 million old, energy-hungry, domestic appliances still in use in the UK.
Time to Change are running the competition again this year after a couple in their 80s won it with a 54 year old guzzler in 2008! This year their mission is to find an even older fridge to pension off.
The competition closes on the 28th of February so you still have time to visit your dearest aunties and great-aunties and try to find that old guzzler.
Some facts and figures: If we all replace the 15.4 million outdated appliances still in use in the UK, we could save enough energy to power 1 million homes.
