Ice Cream Cart Keeps Things Cold with Solar Power

Ice Cream Cart Keeps Things Cold with Solar Power

We've been talking a lot about how to deal with the heat this month, including ways we can change our habits and design our lives to stay cool . Here's another tactic: eat ice cream. Especially ice cream delivered by a cart that uses solar power to charge its high efficiency AGM batteries. © Springtime Thought up by Dutch design firm Springtime (which brought us furniture made from old tomatoes and garbage ), the "Sustainable ice-cream cart " uses two roof-mounted sets of photovoltaic panels to take advantage of the summer sun and keep the ice cream from melting. The aluminum cart is made to be hitched to a car or truck (or even a bike! ) . The design is a joint venture between Springtime, IJs en Zopie (a Dutch fair trade ice cream outfit) and food company Odenwald Organics .
