"Wade has had the specific intention of transforming Sunset Hills into a natural burial site, providing a complete range of “green” disposition and memorial services. Wade pointed to a young tree planted on one natural burial site. “She wanted to be an apple tree,” he explained of the woman now interred there. That apple tree is that grave’s sole marker and one of more than a hundred trees the new management has planted thus far, with many more trees to come." Healthy Green Pages

Nicos C. Elias Funeral Home - Allentown, Pennsylvania

 

Nicos.c.elias.funeral.home"Going green means taking a new ecologically friendly approach to death and funerals. While there are few “green” cemeteries in the U.S., we can still recommend ways to have less of an impact on our environment where funerals are concerned. Some options are biodegradable caskets, urns, preservation without embalming, and even avoiding steel and concrete tombs altogether. For us, it also means using “green” and eco-friendly cleaning products for our disinfecting and sanitizing procedures.

Ecopodbrochurepart1_0001 ...At Mourning Dove Studio we offer one of a kind hand made life chests, caskets, urns, and shrouds. We also provide eco-friendly products newly available in this country, such as the ARKA Ecopod and the Somerset Willow casket. Our mission is to inspire you to take control of how you mark the milestones of life and death. Our products and services help you to personalize final rites of passage and leave a legacy of love. We also offer creative workshops to support you in making your own memorial art..
