Fridge Igloo: Another Eco-Architecture?

Green architecture, container architecture and now fridge architecture? Well, I am not complaining here. I am just so happy seeing different possibilities and ways in saving the environment. We all know that refrigerators can harm our green house gases and by the time, its life ends, it will create another harmful effect to the environment after being discarded and placed to our landfills. Today, refrigerators can help us save the environment with the eco-friendly Igloo built using 322 Fridges. In this way, our landfills will be dramatically minimized while providing a warm and stylish home for our brothers and sisters in Germany.
