Say goodbye to beverage coolers, and hello to Earth Cooler, developed by Danish company eCool. This contraption basically holds up to 24 regular-sized cans, and is installed by simply burying it completely beneath the surface, or just any place with soil – garden, terrace, etc. The only tools required are either a garden shovel or a garden drill to make the hole deep enough.
