Whenever the energy bill spikes, the first among a few suspects is always the fridge. Either someone left it open, or the thought that maybe the calories didn’t count if you ate the ice-cream directly out of the freezer. For those looking to change up how they keep their perishable goods and use less energy, there is the Weltevree Groundfridge.

A kind of modern day cellar, this fridge keeps a constant temperature of 50 degrees without requiring any energy. Simply by virtue of being underground in the cool dirt and away from the sunlight – all of your meats, cheese, vegetables and wines end up being kept nice and cool. Made from a solid piece of hand laminated polyester, this fridge is airtight – making it so no water, bugs, or dirt can make their way in. On top of being the apple of every survivalist and urban farmer’s eye, the fridge has been lauded for its design, ending up as a finalist in the 2015 Dutch Design Awards. To top it all off installation doesn’t require special permits – all you gotta do is dig a big hole and put the dirt back on top of this guy. It’ll cost you at least $10,000 though. [Purchase]
