Natural Green Cremation is Available 
The natural green cremation process is environmentally friendly. The process is quiet and involves no greenhouse emissions. It uses a fraction of the energy of the conventional flame cremation process. Our technology uses only 55 gallons of water - others use much more.

The natural green cremation process is truly a natural process for returning the deceased back into the eco-system. The deceased is cloaked in a natural, biodegradable pouch, and placed in our alkaline hydrolysis chamber. Two natural substances, potassium and sodium, are mixed with warm water that cycles around the deceased until the process has concluded. Then, calcium bone particles are processed similar to the flame process. Cremated remains are returned to the family in a container of their choice.
