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.
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.
