What Makes a Cremation Service Eco-Friendly?

There are numerous ways that you can make a cremation service more eco-friendly. Typically, people who arrange an eco-friendly cremation service will dispense with limousines and even a hearse so that the use of fossil fuels is minimised. What’s more, coffins are often designed to have as low an environmental impact as possible. This means that wooden ones tend not to feature. Instead, wicker ones or those made from recycled cardboard tend to be used. There may be fewer attendees at the service, too, in order to cut down on travel. For this reason, many eco-friendly cremation services are streamed live over a webcam and made available to invited online guests only.

When the cremation itself takes place, energy is used to create the necessary heat. However, this might be offset in numerous ways and we can help you to choose the most appropriate method. A relatively new way of conducting eco-friendly cremations is to use a water resolution for a bio-cremation, This uses up much less energy than a conventional cremation. Again, this is something we can provide further details on so you can decide whether it is for you or not. Finally, it is worth bearing in mind that the ashes of the deceased must be sterile before they can be handed over. Once they’re in this state, they can be scattered to promote new growth. It is also worth considering the vessel that will be used to hold them until they are scattered because some urns are more ecologically sound than others.
