Eco-Cremation

Eco-Cremation - Minimising the Impact of Cremation

Environmentally Friendly Cremations provides sustainable alternatives for clients who are planning a cremation for a loved one who has sadly 'passed over'. We operate in the Melbourne area.


Environmentally Friendly Cremations has Eco-Cremation available.


Eco-Cremation is traditional fire cremation with actions taken to minimise and compensate for it's environmental impact.


Environmentally Friendly Cremations uses eco-coffins made from recycled cardboard that combust more quickly during cremation resulting in fewer carbon emissions.


We also provide Carbon Offsets for every Eco-Cremation. The Carbon Offsets include tree planting in Australia with a range of local tree species.


  • As these trees grow, they absorb or 'sequester' carbon dioxide. 
  • These trees also help to replace forests for native animals whose habitats have been destroyed by human industries.
  • We use the Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund to provide this service.


Eco-Cremation is a dignified, affordable and environmentally friendly funeral option.

Water Cremation by Aquamation - Melbourne Australia

Water Cremation, by Aquamation

What is Water Cremation, by Aquamation?

Environmentally Friendly Cremations now has Water Cremation, by Aquamation available. Water Cremation uses a process that is scientifically known as Alkaline Hydrolysis.


Water Cremation is a natural process that produces less than 10% of the carbon emissions of traditional fire cremation.


Water Cremation is sometimes called Flameless Cremation, BioCremation or Green Cremation.


During a Water Cremation, the deceased is enclosed in a stainless steel Water Cremation unit, which is then filled with a potassium hydroxide and water solution that is heated.


Following a Water Cremation, your loved one's remains are returned to you in an urn in the form of 'Ashes', as with cremation.


Water Cremation has become very sought after in the United States and Canada for it's environmental benefits.

 

Water Cremation, by Aquamation, is a proudly Australian innovation and was a 2015 finalist in the prestigious Australian Technologies Competition.
