Smaller fridges for better cities, and healthier citizens

Bigger isn’t better, especially when it comes to your refrigerator. You probably don’t think of your fridge much but studies have found that the smaller the fridge, the healthier the owner, and it can even be socially beneficial. Bigger fridges mean you store more stuff that isn’t fresh. One study found that those who owned side-by-side, double-door fridges were up to 8 pounds heavier than those who owned traditional types because the freezer packed with ice cream and other junk was more accessible. Smaller fridges also make you shop more, which is a great excuse to go to outdoor farmers markets, walk around and select the great local produce. So small fridges make you eat healthier, walk more, and support your local produce suppliers. Good things do come in small packages.
