Funeral pathway 7
Now more than ever, we are living in a more environmentally conscious world. People are not only considering the impact of their actions while they are alive, they also want to make sure they give back even after they are gone. ‘Green Funerals’, otherwise known as eco funerals, are a perfect way to say goodbye to a loved one, whilst not putting extra strain on the environment.
Eco funerals provide less of a stress on the environment in three key areas.
Coffin materials are also carefully chosen with ‘eco coffin’ materials being biodegradable, and families choose to opt out of the embalming process.
Finally, eco funerals generally have no permanent memorial and graves are not tended to. There are usually restrictions as to what flowers or plants may be planted in the area in order to preserve the aesthetics of the local area.
For Hadaway & Denton, we have a few eco-friendly burial sites local to us including:
Riverview by Kent Natural Burials
Bybrook Cemetery or Tenterden Cemetery
