Green Funerals » Other opportunities

There are many opportunities to make an environmental gesture at the time of a funeral. In addition to those already mentioned you could choose your catering based on environmental credentials - perhaps they provide locally sourced organic food. You could create remembrance material on the web and not bother with printed service sheets... or print them on ECF / TCF or recycled paper. Many of the smaller details come down to how your funeral director runs their business - they could wash the cars with stored rainwater, choose green electricity suppliers, have energy efficiency systems in place, use only natural cleaning products - the list goes on. You probably cant influence these things but any consciousness of these things will eventually lead to more environmentally friendly funerals.
