Green Eco-Friendly Burials
Robinson, Wright & Weymer Funeral Home makes available several "green" burial options and is one of a select group of funeral providers approved by the Green Burial Council. With Green Burials formaldehyde-based embalming is prohibited as is the use of metal or concrete grave-liners, burial-vaults, or other permanent burial containers. Caskets, coffins or alternative containers used are made of bio-degradable materials and are available in a range of prices. With Green Burials, home wakes, public visitations, church funerals and graveside services are options that may be arranged within the time frame green burials allows.
Green burial is a way of caring for the deceased with minimal environmental impact that furthers legitimate ecological aims such as the conservation of natural resources, reduction of carbon emissions, protection of worker health, and the restoration and/or preservation of habitat.
Green burial practices may involve the use of formaldehyde free fluids for temporary sanitation and preservation, as well as the use of caskets, urns, and/or burial shrouds that are constructed of a non-toxic, biodegradable material.
Robinson, Wright & Weymer Funeral Home is proud to offer a selection of services and merchandise to fit the needs of families wishing to honor their loved ones with a green burial.
