Green Funerals » Carbon offesets

It's impossible to have a funeral that doesn't impact the planet in some way. You need to balance family wishes and practical issues with how far you are willing to go to have a green funeral. Once you have decided how the funeral is to be conducted there are many ways to help mitigate the impacts that are left. The family can plant trees or pay into a scheme that does this for you. For example, every time a Return To Sender casket is used a native New Zealand tree is planted plus some exotic species are grown to offset the less obvious aspects of running a business. Other schemes allow you to invest in green energy projects and more. At Offset The Rest you can buy a one tonne carbon credit for $35.
