Zeer: Cooling Off Your Foods the Natural Way

Storing our foods and keeping it fresh requires a fridge to do it. Normally, refrigerators are one of the big contributors to green house gases. That is why people in Nigeria have created a simple device called the Zeer. Zeer is a gadget used for storing and cooling off foods, a truly simple yet effective method in preserving the freshness of our foods. With the use of natural resources like earthenware pots, sand and water, the Zeer can now be able to preserve the freshness and eventually refrigerate your foods. This is truly a great way of preserving energy consumption, since refrigerators eat up large amount of energy in every household.

The whole ‘green’ movement has yet another implication. Sustainability remains a watchword. With this sort of a backdrop, any device allowing you to salvage good out of daily refuse is surely welcome. Drog envisioned by Masatake Nishikawa does precisely that. This “food-waste-processing-unit” converts daily trash into compost which can then be utilized to grow plants organically. The processing is accomplished by Drog within 45 minutes and the user gets readymade manure free from any smell right inside his home. Drog works quite like a blender and is thus capable of breaking down even hard food substances.

People are given no excuse for being lazy as the device is aimed to be located at the most easiest to feed places – alongside the kitchen sink. Any waste can therefore be put in pronto! A simple and pleasing design alongside a tendency to go easy on power makes Drog all the more attractive product. Wheels incorporated in the design make it easy to transport the created manure to plants and a wireless remote control allows user to track what exactly Drog is cooking. This certainly is something that would satiate the conscious consumers that we all think we are. More images of the amazingly neat design of Drag follow.
