Environmentally Friendly Cremations provides a Carbon Neutral Program as a standard feature.
In this program, our funeral directors provide carbon offsets to neutralise the carbon dioxide emissions or 'carbon footprint', that are produced by each Eco-Cremation that we provide for our clients.
We provide carbon offsets that include contributions to reforestation in Australia with biodiverse, native, tree species. As these trees age, they consume or sequester carbon dioxide.
The reforestation also restores habitats for native animals whose habitats may have been destroyed by clearing land and industrial development.
It has been found that approximately 400 kilograms of carbon dioxide is produced for each cremation.
We recognise that these figures are based on cremating remains and coffins made from wood and other materials such as medium-density fibreboard (MDF).
However, over the period of many years, there is an aggregation of the continued upkeep of the grave site with watering, mowing the lawn and other maintenance, totalling a greater level of emissions for a burial than a cremation. Additionally, the use of land for burials and the making and placement of the headstone have a significant impact.
Additionally, these independent news and reference sources have discussed Green cremation options. These excellent articles may be valuable, objective reading for families considering a Green cremation. The publishers have no affiliation with Environmentally Friendly Cremations.
Environmentally Friendly Cremations specialise in Water Cremation, by Aquamation (Alkaline Hydrolysis). Our funeral directors really listen to our clients, and will assist you to create a Green legacy to leave to your family, community and the environment.
