The #IceBoxChallenge is a contest AND an experiment to demonstrate how a home can be super energy efficient and still be comfortable. The Ice Boxes are left outside in the sun for 18 days. When they are opened, the amount of ice left in each box will be measured. How much ice is left shows how well each Ice Box keeps out the summer heat.

Better building design can help us reduce our carbon pollution without changing our behaviour. Energy-efficient homes are comfortable, quiet and healthy.
