Death takes the life out of everything around it, not just your loved one, and feeling “brain dead” while trying to plan how to take care of mom for the last time, it just feels like too much!

Thanks Melissa.Jillian M.Jillian M. ★★★★★ My daughter died VERY unexpectedly at 24 years old. So there i was trying to figure out what the heck just happened and the medical examiner wants to know if I've picked a funeral home yet. All i knew was that my daughter loved the environment so i started with Google and it led me to Melissa. I cannot stress enough how WONDERFUL this woman is. When i called her all my thoughts were a mess inside my head. I cried and rambled on about my daughter and about what i thought she would like and Melissa LISTENED to me. She then helped me with what i wanted to do for my daughter. She wasn't fazed at all when i wanted to change something, she just made it happen. Melissa always answered any questions i had either by texting me back or emailing me.

Our Clean Flame Cremation Process

Our flame cremation service offers an environmentally friendly alternative for those seeking to reduce their impact in death but are not fully comfortable with water cremation or natural organic reduction. This service utilizes the traditional, flame-based cremation process and incorporates eco-friendly measures throughout the process.

Before the cremation takes place, we ensure that the body is free of any materials that could potentially harm the environment, such as batteries or medical devices. During the cremation process, we use clean fuels that produce less pollution, and we monitor the temperature and emissions closely to ensure minimal impact on the environment.

After the cremation, we carefully collect and separate the remains to minimize any potential harm to the environment. We offer a variety of urns and other containers made from eco-friendly materials to house the remains, ensuring that the final resting place is also environmentally conscious.

Our flame cremation service is a thoughtful option for those seeking a more sustainable way to handle their remains after death. By making conscious efforts before, during, and after the cremation process, we strive to make a positive impact on the environment while providing a dignified and respectful service.

What’s Included With Direct Cremation

Our clean flame cremation process includes:

  • Personal assistance from the Director who’s available 24/7.
  • Transfer of deceased from facility of death or Medical Examiner’s office to refrigerated holding (1st 35 miles from our dispatch areas included).
  • Sheltering of the remains in a temperature-controlled environment up to 5 days (additional $50/day, unless delay is involuntary).
  • Removal of plastics and medical devices.
  • Alternative Cremation Container (accommodates up to 249 lbs)
  • Crematory Fee
  • Biodegradable temporary cremains container ($20 value).
  • Appointment for retrieval of cremated remains in our office.

Want to further reduce your impact? A growing number of people are choosing water cremation as an alternative to burial and flame-based cremation services when eco-friendliness is a top priority.

We’re Texas’ First Eco-Focused Funeral Home

A paperless process that isn’t just eco-friendly, it’s more convenient.

Routine paperwork is easier and greener when everything is digital. You’ll have an online copy of all the essential documents that are involved with the cremation arrangements. Easy access that’s easier on the environment.

Transport that has a smaller greener footprint.

The cremation process begins with our team transporting the body to our energy efficient crematorium in as short a distance as possible to reduce the use of fossil fuels. We also use a hybrid vehicle to cut down on emissions.

We minimize air pollutants by removing plastics.

In an effort to minimize impact as much as possible, we remove all medical and end-of-life plastics prior to cremation. This keeps the chemicals from releasing into the atmosphere. We also use clean cotton sheets and place the body in a cardboard container for cremation.

We plant trees in honor of every family that we work with.

We have partnered with Sustainable Harvest International to plant trees where they are most needed around the globe.

Sustainable Harvest International is an environmental nonprofit with over 25 years of experience partnering with smallholder farmers to adopt regenerative practices that nourish people and the planet.
