Beach United Enrolls in Bullfrog Power Program; Takes Another Important Step to Reduce Carbon Footprint

Good news! Beach United Church is taking another step to reduce its carbon footprint!  We are enrolling in a program offered by Bullfrog Power https://www.bullfrogpower.com to offset our purchases of natural gas with an equivalent amount of methane. The methane is produced from the decay of biomass materials in a ” bio-digester” and injected into the pipeline system.

At BUC we are currently burning nearly 6,000 cubic meters of natural gas annually. By offsetting this combustion of natural gas with the purchase of methane, we would help avoid extracting natural gas from the earth.  In this way, we reduce our carbon footprint.

The BUC community, have taken seriously our commitment, as stated in The New Creed, “to live with respect in creation”. More must be done. We are not helpless; we have the power to take actions, both individually and collectively, to nurture life on earth. 

Come and join the Environmental Action Group on Tuesday, November 26 at 7 pm in the BUC office and be part of the next steps to address the climate crisis.  Together we can make a difference!
