Ngaio and Emily are committed to providing genuine eco-friendly deathcare services to their community of practice.

To achieve this, they are working towards a carbon-neutral KORU in 2027.

Their current efforts include contributing to clean energy to help off-set flame cremation emissions, curating KORU’s merchandise to local, Canadian crafted, and/or made from sustainable materials, and actively education about green deathcare.

Both Ngaio and Emily serve on boards advocating for Aquamation and Green Burial respectively, hoping to make these options widely available in BC and beyond.

Ngaio and Emily commit to ushering in an eco-friendly way of death for Vancouver, by continuing efforts and projects to meet this goal.

Below is draft ideas for page: 

From Bullfrog Power: “KORU recognizes the importance of addressing the environmental impact of cremation. We’re reducing our carbon emissions footprint, while supporting renewable energy in Canada, by choosing green natural gas for 100% of the cremation families we serve, through our partnership with Bullfrog Power. Our green energy commitment is also helping to support new, community-based renewable energy projects in our region and across Canada.”

“Whether at home or in the workplace, it’s nearly always going to be easier and more cost-effective to reduce your resource consumption before seeking out greener alternatives.” – quote from Andrew Yang (BFP) blog on “Reduce, Replace, Balance” March 2022

Reduce (use less and use better): ____________________

Replace (choose greener materials and energy consumption): applies to KORU in the sourcing of locally made (BC + Canada) or eco-friendly products wherever possible 

Balance (offset what can’t be replaced): KORU and Bullfrog Power + tree planting program through Tree Canada.
