Carbon Neutral Cremations
Carbon Neutral Cremations and the Cool Cremation Program are created by GreenGraves, LLC. GreenGraves is an environmental marketing firm that is dedicated to helping the death-care industry respond to the growing demand for practices, products and services that protect the environment. GreenGraves helps funeral directors, crematory operators and cemetery owners provide environmentally astute products and services that provide an opportunity to leave an environmental legacy. Cremation is perceived by many people to be environmentally friendly. The thinking is that because their bodies will not be taking up a great deal of space in a cemetery, it is better for the environment because they are saving space in the cemetery. However, now that green cemeteries are emerging around the country, it is more environmentally sound to allow ones un-embalmed body to return to the earth naturally in a grave rather than have it cremated.
