Purewa Receives the Green Award for Water Conservation
Purewa Receives the Green Award for Water Conservation. The Green Award acknowledges Purewa’s rainwater harvesting project. The program began in 2021 by reroofing the chapels to allow the collection of rainwater into three 30,000 litre tanks, which Purewa then uses to water the cemetery’s flowering kidney-shaped gardens.
