Eco funeral

Fee from £1,450

 

Our eco funerals and ceremonies are a more natural, sustainable, green-minded and eco-friendly way of saying goodbye.

 

We care for your loved one with minimal impact on the environment, we don't use the more artificial elements traditionally associated with funerals like lacquered veneer MDF coffins, embalming, big funeral hearses and limousines. You can choose a coffin made from natural, sustainable,

bio-degradable materials such as cardboard or willow,

woven grasses, woven banana-leaf and bamboo, made in

World Fair Trade Organization accredited workshops.

 

We support local flower farms whose flowers are grown not flown, are sustainable, chemical free and have a low carbon footprint.

 

We can organise eco burials in unspoilt landscapes including natural and woodland burial grounds, rather than conventional cemeteries - and you

can even choose for a burial to take place on your own property.

 

While a cremation must take place at a crematorium, the ceremony itself can be held at a special or beautiful venue, indoors or outside - at home,

in your garden, in a field or woods, a rural barn, by a lake or by the sea, in a village hall...

 

We have partnered with Carbon Neutral Britain to offset all

our carbon emmisions. You can choose to offset the carbon

emmissions of a cremation, so your loved one's cremation is

entirely carbon-neutral too.
