When planning a funeral, or pre-planning a funeral, there are many choices that need to be made, including the decision about what to do with the remains of the deceased. For many people, it is increasingly more common to opt for a more environmental means of burial, or in some cases, cremation.
At Mountain View Funeral Home, Memorial Park, and Crematorium, a green burial package is offered through Green Burial Council. The package includes formaldehyde-free embalming and a casket made of biodegradable materials, as well as the option for cremation. Although these services forgo some of the more traditional aspects of a funeral, arrangements are handled with respect to the deceased. These offerings are available with a traditional or alternative funeral service to accommodate any family’s needs or wishes.
