Phoenix Fridges at the Sustainable Cities Round Table, 24 September 2008
As stated on the Phoenix Fridges website:
“The Phoenix Fridge Project is a world-first – an innovative approach to tackling the inefficiency of household fridges which are major contributors to ozone depletion, climate change, waste disposal and landfill limitations. Phoenix Fridges takes fridges donated from all across Melbourne and recycles, repairs, and retrofits them to make them more energy efficient. The project also achieves great outcomes for the community by providing training and employment for people who are unemployed.”
And we were very happy to have Jeff Moon, General Manager of Social Enterprises, Brotherhood of St Laurence, speak at the recent Sustainable Cities Round Table on Waste Not Want Not talk about this project! Check out the video of his presentation below or visit the websites hyperlinked above.
