Our funeral home is the only funeral home in central Wisconsin to meet the criteria for providing green funeral service by the Green Burial Council; a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization working to encourage environmental sustainability in the field of funeral service. Home wakes, public visitations, church funerals and graveside services are all options that may be arranged within the frame that a green funeral allows.
Green funerals include a casket or urn that is completely 100% biodegradable. Absolutely no plastic or metal is incorporated in the casket or urn during their production. They are free of any stains, varnishes, oils or animal products and only biodegradable, non-toxic glue is used. The wood used for the casket or urn should also be from sustainable, local forests. We offer a variety of eco-friendly caskets and urns.
Our funeral home offers alternative preparation from normal embalming suitable for a green funeral. This includes refrigeration, the use of topical oils and sprays, and embalming with essential oils. We also utilize containers for cremation that have a minimal environmental impact.
