Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods chooses 100 per cent green energy with Bullfrog Power for all of its facilities
Toronto, April 20, 2015—Today, Bullfrog Power®, Canada’s leading green energy provider, and Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods (www.manitobaharvest.com), the leading hemp foods manufacturer, announced a new environmental partnership. Manitoba Harvest will be choosing both 100 per cent green electricity and 100 per cent green natural gas with Bullfrog Power for both their head office and all of their manufacturing facilities.
“We have always subscribed to the triple bottom line approach of people, planet and profit, so partnering with Bullfrog Power, a fellow B Corp and industry leader in green energy, makes a lot of sense,” said Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods’ CEO Mike Fata. “Manitoba Harvest is proud to be working with Bullfrog Power to reduce our environmental impact, support new renewable energy projects, and hopefully educate on sustainable choices.”
Through the partnership, Bullfrog Power’s generators put 100 per cent clean, pollution-free electricity onto the grid to match the amount of conventional power that Manitoba Harvest’s facilities use. Across Canada, Bullfrog Power’s green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities, with 50 per cent coming from this region.
In addition, Manitoba Harvest’s green natural gas commitment means that Bullfrog Power’s generators inject green natural gas onto the national pipeline to match the amount of conventional natural gas used by their bullfrogpowered head office and manufacturing facilities.
Sourced from a unique, ground-breaking methane-capture project situated on one of Canada’s landfills, Bullfrog Power’s green natural gas is a climate-friendly alternative to conventional, polluting natural gas. Through this innovative technology, biogas is captured, cleaned up, and put into the national natural gas pipeline, displacing fossil fuel-based gas and reducing CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.
“By choosing Bullfrog Power’s green energy, Manitoba Harvest is not just avoiding the emissions from all of their electricity and natural gas usage—they are also helping to support the development of new green energy projects across the country,” said Shaun Lewis, Vice President, Sales, Bullfrog Power.
