An eco funeral means taking a conscious decision to limit the carbon footprint and environmental impact when a loved one dies. Eco-friendly options can apply to both traditional services and woodland burials.
There are many ways in which you can make a traditional service better for the environment, such as:
Woodland burials are becoming more popular for many reasons. We can arrange woodland burials in Pontypridd and the surrounding areas, and our services can be tailored to meet your individual needs. This is the ideal option for those that wish to have a natural service that will not damage the environment.
A woodland burial is a green funeral service that respects the environment more than any other type of service. Some cemeteries have plots specifically for eco burials or you can choose a natural burial ground in a protected woodland or green space.
Instead of monumental masonry, trees are planted to mark the resting place. Some natural burial grounds have benches that can be inscribed to serve as a memorial. Just like a normal cemetery, visitors are welcome to spend time, and many find the natural surroundings comforting and peaceful.
The requirements of each burial ground may differ. We can advise on the guidelines for each green cemetery. Generally speaking, the body must not be embalmed, and the coffin or casket, clothing or shroud must be 100% biodegradable.
