Eco funeral

Fee from £1,900

 

My eco funerals and ceremonies are more natural, sustainable, green-minded and eco-friendly ways of saying goodbye.

 

I care for your loved one with minimal impact on the environment as I don't use the more artificial elements traditionally associated with funerals like embalming, lacquered veneer MDF coffins, big funeral hearses and limousines. You can choose coffins and ashes containers made from natural, sustainable, bio-degradable materials such as cardboard,

willow, woven grasses, woven banana-leaf and bamboo,

made in World Fair Trade Organization accredited workshops.

 

support local flower farms whose flowers are grown not flown, are sustainable, chemical free and have a low carbon footprint - click here for more details. I have a fully-electric car which is powered by our own solar-panels - which also powers our office.

 

I organise eco burials in unspoilt landscapes rather than conventional cemeteries, including natural and woodland burial grounds where graves are hand-dug - and you can even choose for a burial to take place on your own property.

 

You can choose to offset the carbon emmissions of a cremation, so your loved one's cremation is entirely carbon-neutral. Click here to view an example Cremation Offset Certificate. While a cremation must take place at a crematorium, the ceremony itself can be held at a special or beautiful venue, indoors or outside - in gardens at home, in fields and on farms, in rural barns, on harbour walls, at sea, in lighthouses, at airfields, at country hotels, in a village hall...

 

I've partnered with Carbon Neutral Britain to offset all

carbon emmisions across our little business - see further
