3 Environmental Benefits Of Cremation, Harrison, Ohio

Cremation has become an extremely popular option when it comes to funeral services. In fact, most funeral homes now offer in-house cremation services to better serve their customers. In Harrison, Ohio, Minges Funeral Home has established a reputation for offering compassionate, respectful cremation and memorial service options.

If you’re pre-planning for a funeral and you’re weighing the pros and cons for cremation as opposed to traditional burial, here are three environmental benefits of cremation from Minges Funeral Home:

  • Saves Land: If you opt for cremation, you won’t need to secure a burial plot. Instead, you can place your loved one’s ashes in a cremation urn or plan a ceremony in which you spread your loved one’s ashes in a place they cherished. Choosing to go with cremation will save land and lessen your overall carbon footprint.
  • cremationAccelerates The Decomposition Process: Traditional burial in a casket is a slow decomposition process that can take many years. Cremation is an accelerated option that decomposes a body quickly and efficiently. If standard cremation by fire is not ideal for you or your loved one, visit a green funeral home that offers alternatives to traditional cremation that emit even fewer toxins into the environment.
  • Saves Money: Compared to securing a burial plot and traditional burial services, cremation can be much less expensive. You can also save money and the environment by forgoing a traditional wooden casket. With the additional money you save on memorial service expenses, you can find unique and eco-friendly ways to honor your loved one such as planting a tree or multiple trees in their honor.
