Planning guides: funeral.

Preparing for Eventualities

We'll start our guide with a few tips for people who have time to consider options. See the next two tabs if you must make immediate plans.

  1. Make Arrangements Ahead of Time.

    It's a good idea to state your intentions ahead of time, letting family and loved ones that you'd like a green funeral and relieving the stress of decision making during a time of mourning.

  2. Add a clause in your will.

    Or create an advanced funeral wishes document that stipulates your green funeral concerns. Wishes to donate organs should also be made clear - this is the ultimate gift you can give to someone in need.

  3. Ask your funeral director...

    about more sustainable options, or seek out a funeral home that offer green practices. See our Planners and Services page for assistance.
