Green Burials


Green and Eco-Friendly Funerals

The Green or Natural Burial is a way of caring for our dead with the least possible environmental impact.  Families will not be limited in choice of services when selecting a Green Burial (GB).  Public viewing with approved eco-friendly embalming fluids, church funerals, home vigils and direct burials are all available to families selecting a Natural Burial.

These offerings allow for a funeral to take place without the use of toxic or non-biodegradable materials/chemicals.  Caskets and shrouds are made available to enclose and transport the dead.  Body preparation suitable for  a green funeral service accommodated by this funeral home consists of refrigeration, the use of topical sprays/compounds or arterial embalming with essential oils.  Home wakes, public visitations, church funerals and graveside services are options that may be arranged within the time frame that a green funeral allows.  Please check our supplemental price list for detailed price information regarding our service and merchandise offerings.
