Green Funerals » Home

Green funerals can mean different things to different people. This site is intended to empower families who want to conduct a funeral which has a low impact on the environment. The term eco funeral is sometimes used but confusion arises when some people associate eco with economy while others are thinking ecology. Green funerals can encompass many aspects of funerals such as burial, cremation, embalming and coffins / caskets. You are reading this because you have a loved one to take care of or you are thinking ahead to ensure your funeral is carried out in the manner you have lived your life, with respect for the environment that supports us all. Either way, you need to take control. Don't expect your funeral director to promote green options to you. In most cases they are available only if you request them.
