What Does It Entail?

At Green Endings you can have any mix of funeral options you like, so long as it's green, and the best person to talk about this with is your Oakwood funeral director.

A Green Endings Funeral is a more sustainable and an affordable alternative to a traditional funeral. It is a more natural and softer way to leave a living legacy.

Choosing to have a Green Endings funeral not only significantly reduces the amount of carbon emissions produced compared to a traditional funeral, but reduces the overall environmental degredation of land, air and waterways.

Green Endings can advise you on environmentally-sustainable options to reduce this impact, and will help you incorporate them into the funeral service.

A Green Endings funeral places more emphasis on family involvement – families can pick where in the bush land setting they would like the burial to occur, ceremonies can occur at the gravesite, and trees can be planted in honour of the loved one.

It is an alternative way to create a truly personalised service which reflects the life and legacy of your loved one – a softer, lighter, smaller footprint on the earth.
