Our San Marcos Cremation Options

Over the last 20 years, Green Cremation Texas has developed what we call clean flame cremation. The process is much more energy-efficient and greener than traditional flame-based cremation.

Water cremation, also known as aquamation, is the newest and greenest end of life service. Absolutely no flame is involved, which eliminates airborne toxins and pollutants. The process also uses 90% less energy compared to traditional flame-based cremation services.
