Change the World Wednesday

Change The World Wednesday is hosted by Reduce Footprints, an awesome blog that I came across through the Green Blog Hop and jumped right into the challenge. I plan to participate every week and hope to inspire and spread the word so that others can participate as well. If you participate, just leave a comment on the current challenge and you will get featured on the following weeks challenge. You can learn all about it HERE

Let's jump right into this weeks challenge:

Refrigerators use a lot of energy. We can minimize their impact by making sure they operate efficiently. So this week let's do a little refrigerator maintenance. Here you go:

Check that your refrigerator is level ... the door should automatically swing shut instead of staying open. Check the seal on the door ... try closing it on a piece of paper. If you can pull the paper out easily, it's time to replace the gaskets. Check the back of your refrigerator to be sure that it's clean ... vacuum coils if you have them to ensure that the compressor runs efficiently. How full is your refrigerator? Be sure that it isn't too full ... allow room for cool air to circulate which will keep everything at the right temperature.

Or ...

If you are already diligent at keeping your refrigerator in tip-top condition, please tell us about another electrical device that could run more efficiently with a little "TLC".

Until next time (complete with the week's recap of your posts, tweets & comments) ...


Join in and share tips, pics, posts on the weekly CTWW post HERE!


  1. WhooHoo! Fabulous video ... it really shows exactly how to check the refrigerator. And love your additional tips! Here's one more for you ... plan ahead to defrost items by letting them defrost in the refrigerator instead of on a counter ... it takes longer but the frozen food will help keep the refrigerator area cool so that it requires less energy to operate.

    Thanks so much for playing along ... we've missed you at #CTWW! :-)

  2. Yeah! if you look in my video I have some hamburger meat for tomorrow in there! Thanks, I'm glad I'm back... I just sent over like 10lbs of newspapers too! lol
