Green Funeral

Has the time arrived at last when humanity, particularly in the west, has begun to think seriously about changing our habits and lifestyle so that we will have a world to hand on to future generations?

As a relatively new independent firm of funeral directors, we at Full Circle believe an important part of that conversation of change is around the ‘end of life’ style too.

We certainly don’t have all the answers, but what we are trying to do is encourage people to begin thinking and talking openly about the choices that they and their families have available to them when arranging a funeral.

Some may wish to have a completely “green” funeral, whereas others may wish to incorporate some environmentally friendly elements. A funeral is often a time for reflection and including “greener” options can be a powerful signal to those present.

Our presentation will look at whether funerals matter, green options that are now available from types of committal to styles of coffins, transport and little details that can make a big difference. We hope that this session will also encourage you to take the conversation further with family and friends.
