Plano has been ranked one of the best places to live in the U.S. for good reason. It offers authentic Texas living in a picturesque setting. But as more corporations move to town, the development has to be balanced with eco-friendly choices that preserve Plano’s unique appeal.
When it comes to end of life services no funeral home is more dedicated to protecting the local environment than Green Cremation Texas. Our services were created to give families eco-friendly cremation options that they can feel better about.
There are few places in the country like Plano where you can take a step back in time to how people lived more than 125 years ago. Visiting the Heritage Farmstead Museum is a reminder of simpler times when funeral services were about celebrating the life of a loved one not planning an extravagant affair with a lot of unnecessary waste.
Many families are led to believe that if they want to have a memorial service it has to be done in a few short days before a burial or cremation. In actuality, direct cremation gives Plano families the ability to hold a meaningful memorial service after the process is complete.
Planning a Memorial After Choosing Direct Cremation in Plano
One complaint many people have about traditional burial is that the process didn’t seem as fulfilling and meaningful as they thought it would be. That’s because many funerals aren’t natural or personalized. They follow the formulaic process of the funeral home, and the funeral home is your one real option for where memorial services will be held.
Direct cremation doesn’t force Plano families to have a standard memorial service that’s just like every other memorial at the funeral home. You can choose to have a viewing or memorial prior to the cremation, and there is plenty of time to plan a memorial that’s held after the cremation. There’s no rush to get things done and the options are limitless.
Choosing cremation only in Plano allows you to:
Give your loved one the memorial they would have wanted to plan themselves. Direct cremation provides more flexibility and less formality that gets in the way of a meaningful memorial.
We’re Texas’ first and only carbon-neutral funeral home. So you know you’ll get the most innovative and eco-friendly services from Green Cremation Texas. We offer not one but two types of cremation that are cleaner than traditional options without costing more.
If you prefer traditional, flame-based cremation Green Cremation Texas has developed a process that is much greener than the norm. From scheduling services to deliver your loved one’s remains, we cut energy use and carbon emissions whenever possible. Years of experience have gone into making our flame cremation as efficient as it can possibly be.
We are excited to bring Plano families a new type of cremation that’s extremely eco-friendly. Water cremation, sometimes referred to as aquamation or alkali hydrolysis, uses a liquid solution to accelerate decomposition. The end result is nearly identical to flame cremation, but no smoke or toxic airborne pollutants are generated. Water cremation also uses 90% less energy.
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 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.
