Older models of refrigerators are known for releasing green house gases such as CFC and HCFC. Thankfully, most of these units are beginning to be phased out. Just keep in mind that while buying appliances, opt for ENERGY STAR® qualified units.
It’s worth noting that even though the new models do not emit as many greenhouse gases and other pollutants, they still cause pollution during their manufacture. The negative impact of a product begins as soon as the raw materials are gathered. It continues as those materials are processed, and doesn’t stop until the product is completely biodegraded. Even after a product, like a refrigerator, has stopped working and is in a dump, it can still emit pollutants into ground water and the air.
