Whole Foods, Bosch Target Old Refrigerators
Whole Foods Market and Bosch Home Appliances have launched a 30-day campaign called âMake a Green Change,â part of the U.S. Department of Energyâs national Energy Star Make a Cool Change effort, with the aim of getting consumers to replace old refrigerators and freezers with more energy efficient models.
The campaign includes a “Make a Green Change: 30 Ways in 30 Days” calendar – given away at Whole Foods – and a microsite at www.wholefoodsmarket.com/earthmonth that provides info on refrigerator recycling. Whole Foods’ “Recycle Your Old Refrigerator Sweepstakes” is giving away Bosch Evolution refrigerators, stuffed with foods from Whole Foods Market.

– 16.9 million homes have freezers more than 10 years old – thatâs 44 percent of all freezers.
