More and more people have the words Eco Funerals and Eco Burials on their lips. We have heard of eco cemeteries in England. We have heard of the Natural Death Centre in Byron Bay who champion eco funerals. And we ask are green funeral solutions available on the Sunshine Coast? The short answer is yes green funerals are available, eco options are around and natural burials will soon be an option.
Engaging your eco values in a funeral for your loved ones is a continuation of life values.
It begins with a holistic approach to the end of life, and continues into the way we say farewell. Many options are available to families, to make rituals for the end of life more deeply personal and down to earth, and …. green.
Imagine wrapping your dear one in an eco shroud, or an eco coffin. Imagine using a family car or horse and cart for transport. Imagine farewelling your loved one in your own garden, on a beach, in the forest.
Imagine a burial ground near forest, that is allowed to return to nature once the graves are buried. Imagine visiting the site of your dear one, in a leafy forest, and sitting on real ground amongst bird song and breeze. A place full of natural life and vigour.
