Ben & Jerry’s new Greenfreeze makes Greenpeace proud
Ben & Jerry’s have teamed up with the environmental advocate Greenpeace to unveil an environmentally friendly freezer. The freezer, which will eliminate dangerous F-gas emissions found in standard freezers, runs on about three cigarette lighters’ worth of propane. The impact the project expects to have will be equivalent to taking 850,000 Hummer H3 SUVs off the road.
Ben & Jerry’s acquired the freezers as part of a two-year EPA-approved trial program of the “Greenfreeze” technology.
