Reducing Our Carbon Footprint
What Are Carbon Offsets?
Carbon offsets are mechanisms to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and other harmful greenhouse gases. A carbon offset is a certificate representing the reduction of a single metric ton — 2,205 pounds — of carbon dioxide emissions. By participating in these emission reduction projects, Tulip Cremation is doing its part to reduce the damaging effects of climate change. We support other projects that lower emissions and produce renewable energy. And the fact that families can make all their arrangements online or by phone dramatically reduces the need for brick-and-mortar locations that consume additional power.
Our Carbon Reduction Plans
Our plan supports programs that reduce greenhouse gases in three ways:
1. Capture and destroy greenhouse gas that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere (i.e., methane gas capture projects at landfills to produce electricity.)
2. Produce energy using clean, renewable resources like wind power.
3. Capture and store greenhouse gases in forests to remove them from the atmosphere.
