No Power Cooling

There are steps to make fridges more and more efficient but even the low energy rated ones use heaps of power. Here is an alternative – the Zeer Pot.

Made of two earthenware pots, one inside the other, and sand between them. Keep the sand moist and you can keep perishable food fresh for almost 20 days. No electricity needed.

This type of food cooling has been use in Africa for years. If you would like to help give a practical present to people in the Sudan, you can do this for a reasonable £12.
