★★★★★ Love the eco-friendly option and the knowledgeable funeral director on staffBrian G.Brian G. ★★★★★ Marlaena was absolutely fantastic. She went out of her way and pulled some strings to bring my momma home as fast as possible and I will never forget her kindness. After we initially decided I’d have to look elsewhere, somewhere closer, and after I’d already contacted other options- she reached out to me and made it happen faster (and cheaper!) than even the closest places. Absolutely phenomenal service. I will never forget her name. Thank you. Marlaena!Ashley T.Ashley T. ★★★★★ Compassionate and affordable cremations, staff really cares about families. Marlaena Gonzalez did an amazing job.Jacob M.Jacob M. ★★★★★ Caring staff, any questions are always answered quickly and I appreciated being able to text the funeral director and do everything online. And the price was very affordable.Google U.Google U. ★★★★★ Very professional and accommodating. Made my experience seamless. Collecting my Mothers ashes felt more personal rather than business transaction.Agustin A.Agustin A. ★★★★★ Compassionate and affordable cremations, staff really cares about families. Marlaena Gonzalez did an amazing job.Jacob M.Jacob M. ★★★★★ Cremation Green was extremely easy to work with, thorough, and efficient. They were very accommodating on a special request as well.Everything was handled via the phone and web. I didn’t have a need for any face-to-face interactions until I picked-up my son’s ashes. Marlena was great to work with throughout the entire process.Jim H.Jim H. ★★★★★ My experience with Green Cremation was excellent. Marlena answered the phone every time I called, and was always patient and helpful. Highest recommendation.Rose R.Rose R. ★★★★★ No one ever wants to use a funeral service twice in a 9 month period but that is exactly what I had to do. Green Cremation made the experience bearable from start to finish.Terry G.Terry G. ★★★★★ Very kind and compassionate. Also very affordable when there's no life insurance to help. Thank you so much for taking good care of my father 💞Sarah E.Sarah E. ★★★★★ I found GC to be efficient and thoughtful. Curbside delivery to boot!Thanks Marlaena. Highest recommendation!mtprtr P.mtprtr P. ★★★★★ Marlaena went above and beyond to make a difficult time as easy as possible for my family. She was a wealth of knowledge, patient, and kind through the process and I am glad I chose Green Cremation.Sheena H.Sheena H. ★★★★★ Green Cremation Texas was very helpful and pleasant to work with from start to finish. I was present for the pickup of my loved one and conversed with the office multiple times throughout the process. I could not have asked for better care, assistance, and/or guidance during such a time as this. Thank you Green Cremation Texas!Laura G.Laura G. ★★★★☆ Overall helpful and good people. Marlaena is very patient and professional, we were comfortable leaving our grandmother in their care. I have recommended them to others and I would do so.My one issue has been with the Death Certificates. We paid for multiple copies, and through lots of run around, we are having to take care of that on our own, with the State, /again/. I need the business to offer pick up for Death Certificates. I would have paid a fee to do so. I understand that might be a challenge for liability reasons, but it's got to be better than us having to run around months after our Grandmother's death to still get certificates we already paid for, because we didn't receive the first set, and because we didn't request them originally, have to start this process all over again.Elvira R.Elvira R. ★★★★☆ We unfortunately had to employ their services in Oct 2021 when our son passed unexpectedly. We made arrangements to have him cremated. They told us the price, and when they thought they would cremate him. So we planned a celebration of life ceremony and burial for several days after that, just to leave time for shipping his remains back to Pennsylvania. We did not realize that we had to pay an additional fee to have his cremation expedited, to get him there on time. The additional fees move your loved one into the schedule. Without it, they will remain in storage until such a time that all the expedited folks are completed. It was not explained to us well at the time. I would have paid the $400 fee up front if I had realized that it would be an issue. Unfortunately, it wasn’t explained like that. I’m sure it wasn’t intentional. And because of our emotional state, we didn’t fully comprehend the way it was explained to us. Overall, they did a nice job. But this business practice of charging to jump the line does not seem fair to others who cannot afford to pay it. They should just charge everyone a little more upfront, and take people in the order they arrive. That is a much better business model.Robyn C.Robyn C. ★★★★★ They were prompt in picking up my husband, kind, caring and helped me with all of the details via their online service updates. Also, I was able to select a beautiful Raku urn for his ashes.Toni C.Toni C. ★★★★★ Working w/ Green Cremation was a very e asy & straightforward experience during a tough time. Marlaena and their website explained everything clearly regarding the process and all of the associated costs; nothing hidden, everything transparent. Couldn't ask for a more professional service.Jeff A.Jeff A. ★★★★★ This was the absolute best experience I could have hoped for. Marlena was wonderful, she catered to our every need including making sure we had our ashes and paperwork in hand in time for our trip. I can't thank her enough for making this experience the best it could have possibly been under the circumstances.Trish C.Trish C. ★★★★★ Great to work with …KristieHurnKristieHurn ★★★★★ Very thoughtful, clear, and accomodating - this is a great sensitive provider of this important serviceDavid C.David C. ★★★★★ During a very difficult time for my family and me.

She helped make Momma’s celebration of life the way Momma wanted it. THANKS!HueRTaCuLTuRe C.HueRTaCuLTuRe C. ★★★★★ This was the absolute best experience at the absolute worst time in my life. I lost my mom last week and reached out to Texas Green Cremations. I can’t possibly express what an amazing experience this was. So compassionate, professional and reasonably priced. Melissa took such good care of all the details. I can fully recommend them and will be prearranging for my husband and myself. Our local funeral home was going to cost over $3000.00 and we took care of everything for under $1000.00. Call them, you will not be sorry.Tammy Laikin D.Tammy Laikin D. ★★★★★ You never want to make this call but when you need to please call Melissa at Green Cremations. This was the most professional, compassionate and easy transaction. Everything from start to finish was handled with care. I truly couldn’t be more pleased. Will most likely prearrange for my husband and myself next.Tammy D.Tammy D. ★★★★★ I keep trying to write this review and I’m at a loss for words. 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! Melissa has been the most present, patient, and intuitive funeral director I’ve ever met in a way that was organic and full of warmth. She let me be as involved in the process as I wanted to be even taking as much time needed to explain all my questions about the logistics and paperwork. It never felt like I was separated by some door and secrecy. I recommend Green Cremation Texas because they weren’t just a funeral home, they became my tribe. For the first time in my experience with death, I didn’t just get a funeral home that helped facilitate closer, I was given an experience that planted the seeds of healing. Thank you.Nani U.Nani U. ★★★★★ Green Cremation Texas helped us through a very difficult time. Specifically Melissa. She was there from start to finish throughout the whole process. Was very flexible with our timeline, and very thorough with the details and communicating with the funeral home. I couldn’t recommend these folks enough. She even checked in with us after the entire process was over and made sure everything went smoothly.We’re so glad we found Green Cremation Texas. I don’t know what we would have done otherwise. 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. I'm so glad i found Melissa and her services.Melissa C.Melissa C. ★★★★★ My daughter died VERY unexpectedly at 24 years old.

A funeral home that my extended family had chosen was overcharging and my family didn’t have that kind of money.

If protecting the environment was an important cause for your loved one, then our green cremation services are the perfect way to honor their memory. As the first and only carbon-neutral funeral home in the state, only Green Cremation Texas Funeral Home can provide the most eco-friendly end of life services in Houston.

Flame Cremation

Flame Cremation in Houston

Traditional cremation can require a lot of energy, and incineration has the potential to release harmful toxins into the atmosphere. Our clean flame cremation process eliminates the incineration of plastics and uses less energy compared to standard cremation services.

Water Cremation

Water Cremation in Houston

Aquamation, commonly referred to as water cremation, is a relatively new service that few funeral homes can offer. Our water cremation process involves a water/alkali solution and elevated heat that causes natural decomposition without producing any carcinogens. It is an extremely green option that uses 90% less energy than traditional services.

Natural Burial

Natural Burial for Houston Residents

Natural burial is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional burial that supports the conservation of natural resources. This kind of burial gives families the opportunity to surround their loved ones with a natural beauty to honor their departing journey. It often involves burying the person in a biodegradable container or shroud, free from embalming fluids, and limits the use of metal and concrete, thus leaving only a minimal impact on the environment.

Natural Organic Reduction

Houston Natural Organic Reduction

Natural organic reduction is an innovative and environmentally friendly disposition. It is a process that breaks down organic material into nutrient-rich compost by using natural microorganisms present in the environment.

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.
