Brooklyn Cremation Services

Guide to an Eco-Friendly Afterlife  

Did you know at least 50,000,000 people pass away every single year? In addition to being sad for the people who lost a loved one, it is unfortunate for the eco-system because traditional burial services have a negative impact on the environment. Fortunately, you can lessen the impact with a green funeral and eco-friendly burial - including Brooklyn cremation services. Everyone passes away at some point in time, why not make the carbon footprint you leave behind a little smaller?

The professional staff of Bergen Funeral works with many families and members of the Brooklyn community to honor and memorialize loved ones passed. Our Brooklyn cremation services give you means to have more control over an extremely stressful situation. Cremation allows for more time to plan a service to fully capture the essence and spirit of a departed loved one. Likewise, our eco-conscious practices minimize environmental impact. When a family member passes away, we provide ways to honor them while remaining mindful of the earth they spread their love upon.

Below, we've cataloged some reasons why our eco-friendly Brooklyn cremation services are beneficial to you and Earth, and alternative services for nature lovers and eco-conscious families alike.

Cremate Your Remains

Cremation may not seem like a green idea because burning anything means creating air pollution if there are any toxic substances involved, such as embalming fluid. However, modern day crematoriums have made huge strides in reducing emissions. Furthermore, a lot of cemeteries (especially those in the United States) have many rules and regulations requiring the use of concrete vaults and coffins in order to make it impossible for your body to become one with nature if you were to choose a traditional burial.

From a green perspective, Brooklyn cremation services are a happy alternative because it means your body won’t be left to take up space in the earth in a concrete vault until the end of time.

Leave Behind a Living Marker

After the funeral, consider having your loved ones plant a tree or a bush in your name. Your cremated ashes can be sprinkled around whatever you choose to have planted. This living marker can provide your loved ones with a place to go when they want or need to feel close to you. The plant will allow you to live on in the world to be with your loved ones despite your passing away.

If (for whatever your reasoning may be) you do not like the idea of cremating your remains, a green burial is the next best option. A green burial involves not using embalming fluid and being placed in the ground without a concrete vault. In time, this will allow your body to become one with nature.

The most important thing you can do is discuss your wishes with a loved one and consider getting them in writing. The people you leave behind need to know you want a green afterlife.
