Green Direct Cremation Options in Austin

We’ve created a cleaner way to perform flame cremation that’s more energy efficient and results in fewer air-borne toxins compared to traditional services. Extra precautions are taken to ensure no plastics are ever incinerated and energy use is minimized at every stage in the process.

In Texas you have the option of choosing water cremation, also referred to as aquamation. We’re among the few Austin funeral homes that specializes in this unique method that utilizes a water/alkali solution for natural decomposition rather than pollutant-generating incineration. Overall, 90% less energy is used with water cremation.

Austin Funeral Urns That Are Better for the Environment

Once the cremation is complete we can store the remains in a temporary recyclable container. We also have a variety of green cremation containers in Austin that can be used for burials and scattering ceremonies.

Urns are containers for cremated remains that contain the ashes of a deceased individual. They are often made of bronze, brass, copper, steel, or ceramic.

We offer a variety of services, including cremation, burial, viewings, and more. Urns are typically used as a container for cremated remains. However, some people choose to use them as a memorial item instead. If you would like to purchase an urn, we recommend using one that has been designed specifically for cremation.

Our Cremation Process

Understanding Cremation Cost in Austin

Few people are prepared to handle the death of a loved one without having to deal with the frustration of deciphering all of the related expenses. Funeral homes are notorious for having less than transparent pricing, low-ball estimates and adding on unexpected fees.

Green Cremation Texas is helping clear up the confusion by making burial and direct cremation prices in Austin more transparent.

Also known as ‘bio-cremation’, ‘Aqua-Cremation’, or resomation, green cremation is a gentle, environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional cremations and casket burials. It is a quiet process that uses water and potassium hydroxide to reduce the deceased’s body to its basic element of bone ash.

Like cost-of-living, Austin funeral costs have increased significantly in recent years. The average cost of a funeral without factoring in the cost of a plot, burial fees and headstone is slightly above the national average of $7,300. With all of the costs included a traditional burial in Austin can easily exceed $10,000.

The average cost of cremation in Austin is less than a traditional burial, but if you opt for services at the funeral home it can be expensive. While Austin cremation services are generally between $4,000-$6,500, Cremation.Green starts at only $995

Cost of Direct Cremation in Austin

Cheap cremation in Austin is possible when you choose a no service option. This option is known as direct cremation. The cost of cremation without service in Austin is closer to just $1,000-$2,200.

Austin direct cremation costs don’t involve embalming, extra funeral home fees, staff payments, casket rental and printed memorial materials. At Green Cremation Texas Austin Funeral Home we keep it simple with all-inclusive direct cremation packages for a single price. You get eco-friendly cremation services without hidden fees, upsells and unnecessary extras.

Austin Cremation Only Services - Higher Quality, Lower Impact
