Eco Friendly & Carbon Neutral Funerals

It is becoming more popular to try and reduce our carbon footprint nowadays and we can help apply that to a funeral arrangement. At Beech funeral services we feel strongly about doing our bit where possible. To reduce the carbon footprint of a funeral can be done in various different ways, there is even an option further down the page to make a funeral carbon neutral.

Some examples are:

  • The type of coffin you choose can make a big difference to a carbon footprint, consider using a coffin made from natural materials such as wool, wicker or banana leaf. These are often free from any chemical varnishes and plastics.
  • If you chose to have funeral flowers, consider having them free of any florist foam, sprays or wire. Or you could decide to have donations to a charity instead of flowers.
  • Living memorials have also become more popular in recent years, this means planting a tree or a bush in memory of a loved one, it also serves as a memorial place to visit.
  • Consider whether you need funeral vehicles or reducing the use of lots of cars for a service.
  • Opting to have a natural burial or using a biodegradable urn where suitable.

A recent development also means you can make any funeral arrangements carbon-neutral. This is done by purchasing ‘carbon credits’, these credits then offset your carbon emissions. This can be done for a little as £35, visit us in branch for more information or go to
