Tom and Beth Tailer run the Governor's Institute on Engineering at UVM. Together with high school and college interns, they've spent the past several months building a large scale freezer out of sustainable materials for the Vermont Sustainable Heating initiative.

They are using common household items like plastic soda bottles and styrofoam trays. This modern incarnation of the old-fashioned ice house will keep food frozen without an external energy source.
