We Offer Green Funerals in East Coast and South Australia

Serving Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane & Adelaide

Environmentally Friendly Cremations is a Green Funeral director that specialises in Water Cremation, by Aquamation®. 

Our business initially offered green burial and simple eco-cremation, however, we have moved away from these because we believe that the most natural and eco-friendly funeral is a Water Cremation.

Water Cremation is the natural, green and ethical alternative to both traditional fire cremation and burial. Water cremation produces less than 10% of the carbon emissions of fire cremation. 

Water Cremation has become a very sought after type of green funeral in the USA and Canada and Environmentally Friendly Cremations is the leading provider of Water Cremation in Australia.

We offer Direct Water Cremation or Full Service Green Funeral with Water Cremation. Please see our Green Funeral Prices below.

Environmentally Friendly Cremations has coverage for Victoria, N.S.W, A.C.T, Southern Queensland and South Australia. Our coverage includes the Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide and Brisbane, as well as regional areas.

Please contact our friendly and caring team to learn about the green funeral options we can provide near your home.

Aquamation® is the better, greener alternative for the body and our planet.

Why choose Aquamation®?

No direct emissions.

Fire cremations burn fossil fuels, which create significant pollution and can emit harmful substances like carbon monoxide, particulates (PM10 and PM2.5), and heavy metals, including mercury, lead, and cadmium. Aquamation® uses only water, heat, and a small amount of an alkaline solution powered by electricity, with no direct emissions, making it the most eco-friendly funerals.

Less energy use.

Aquamation® uses less than 10% of the energy of a traditional fire cremation, which significantly reduces emissions, and is more efficient compared to a gas, LPG, or diesel-fired cremation. When coupled with electricity from a renewable source, the Aquamation® process can almost be entirely carbon-neutral.

Fewer procedures.

Unlike flame cremation or burial, the delicate nature of the Aquamation® process does not remove medical devices such as pacemakers, implants, or jewellery from the body before the process through invasive mortuary procedures. These can be gathered once the process is complete - maintaining dignity and respect for the body after death.

Water Cremation was Chosen by a Legendary Nobel Laureate and Activist

ARCHBISHOP EMERITUS DESMOND TUTU — the anti-Apartheid leader, Nobel Laureate, and Anglican Archbishop Emeritus who called climate change “one of the greatest moral challenges of our time” requested Aquamation® or Water Cremation, as an eco-friendly final disposition for his body.

The choice by Archbishop Desmond Tutu is raising awareness of the possibilities of Water Cremation, and a way for the funeral industry to play its part in reducing emissions.

‘Traditional’ practices like embalming and cremation have been the standard for the last couple of centuries, and have serious consequences for contributing to global warming.
