Many of us are becoming aware of the impact our lifestyle choices have on the environment around us. From composting and recycling to using biodegradable cleaning products – they’ve become part of every day life.
These choices are also starting to influence how we organise a funeral. In Funeralcare we’re now seeing a growing trend towards eco-friendly burials.
There are many variations on the theme, but most tend to take place in an established woodland or natural setting with low-key memorial options made of wood rather than the more traditional headstone.
Funeralcare team up with GreenAcres
We’re pleased to announce that we’ve teamed up with GreenAcres to offer their services to interested customers. This is a great opportunity for us to give more choice to our clients.
We know they have similar ethics and values to our own, and colleagues who’ve referred clients to them in the past have given us great feedback about their services.
The great news is that Co-op members will receive a 10% discount when buying a GreenAcres product or service.
