We need a song about putting blankets or other materials around an old or new fridges to insulate it and make it green.
We have put plain fleece blankets around our refrigerator and it really helps. We used magnets to make them stay a little closer. Refrigerator insulation on old and new fridges rock. Ask for pics if you want to.

The refrigerator is the most energy needy appliance in your home. Adding additional insulation to the outside of your icebox can cool your energy bills considerably.
It takes 50% less power consumption through extra insulation with polystyrene foam (styrofoam) to make a green eco fridge!
Ice house unit that is completely "off-grid". The walls, and ceiling are 19" thick of insulation board. The floor is 16" thick and is a combination of insulation and lumber. The ice was harvested in December from a pond on the property and the entire stack of ice has only melted about 8". The refrigerator is accessed a few times with each meal of the day.
Thirty-five nations and the European Union decided to curb hydro fluorocarbons, a set of powerful heat-trapping gases used in refrigeration, air conditioning, heat pumps, and insulation. grist.org/climate-energy/explained-in-90-seconds-your-fridge-is-accelerating-climate-change-but-it-doesnt-have-to/
After sitting on two energy-efficiency rules for more than a year and a half, the Obama administration finally released them on Thursday. They won’t be official until early next year, after the public has time to comment and regulators have time to consider those comments, but at least they’re now moving forward. grist.org/news/cool-news-big-fridges-to-get-more-efficient-under-new-obama-rules/
