Many people strive to live an eco-friendly life and limit their negative impact on the natural world and want to leave the world a greener place after they pass on. Planning an environmentally-friendly funeral and memorial service is a beautiful way to honor the environmentally friendly passions and beliefs of departed loved ones.
Southern Cremations & Funerals specializes in helping metro Atlanta families and individuals plan and arrange eco-friendly services and memorials whether they are planning in advance or are in need of immediate assistance. Read below for some easy ways to make a funeral or memorial more eco-friendly.
Record Your Wishes for an Eco-Funeral
Planning in advance and recording your requests is the best way to ensure that your family and loved ones know your wishes for an environmentally friendly service. After a loss, family members will be experiencing feelings of grief and may be overwhelmed by all the arrangements that need to be made. Writing down a record, of exactly what you would want, helps avoid confusion or anxiety over your wishes.
Southern Cremations & Funerals has experienced and compassionate staff available to help you understand your options, prearrange what is possible, and record your wishes for family members and loved ones. Not only does this take some of the stress and burden off those in charge of making arrangements, it also makes note of your eco-preferences.
Ask for Potted Flowers or Donations to Charity
After a family experiences a loss, many people send bouquets or arrangements to the family and loved ones. However, you can always request that, in lieu of cut flowers, people express their condolences by sending potted plants and flowers that can be replanted for an at-home memorial garden. It is also common to request that people donate to a favorite charity or have the donations used to buy carbon offsets.
