Many things, including funerals, can have negative effects on the environment. With eco-friendly funeral plans from Golden Leaves, people help loved ones leave this world peacefully while also minimising their impact on the environment.
[London, 10/5/2019] – Burying or cremating the dead are rituals that are so deeply ingrained in both cultural and religious history. Because of these long-standing customs, only a few people take a moment to question the practices that surround them. Recently, though, in light of statistics and other facts about burials and cremations, people have discovered just how environmentally unfriendly some of these practices can be.
Consider the toxic chemicals used for embalming, the emissions that come from a cremated body and the many natural resources that go into creating caskets – all multiplied by the millions of people who pass away each year – and the environmental impacts are quite astounding.
In a quest to be more environmentally conscious, people are now looking for greener ways to conduct burials. This is exactly what Golden Leaves offers. With funeral plans that have been carefully curated to minimise their impact on the environment, clients can send their loved ones off in a dignified and loving yet eco-friendly way.
