A GREEN CHOICE

What are Green Funerals?

Green funerals use natural funeral practices and environmentally friendly coffins and urns, and are a sustainable alternative to the traditional funerals offered by most funeral directors. 

  • There are 3 types of Green funerals:  Green Burial, EcoCremation, or Water Cremation (Alkaline Hydrolysis).

Australian Green Funerals provides these services in the Melbourne and Sydney areas.


At Australian Green Funerals:

  • We use eco-coffins made from strong, solid, recycled cardboard and reused wood.
  • This avoids destroying forests caused by felling trees to provide materials for coffins.
  • We carbon offset our funerals with native tree planting in Australia that also helps to restore forests for native animals.
  • We also have eco-friendly cremation urns available, that are made from recycled materials. 

Please call John on 0438 318 802 for more information about our services.

GREEN FUNERAL OPTIONS

EcoCremation & Water Cremation, by Aquamation

EcoCremation is a dignified, affordable and environmentally friendly funeral option. 

  • Australian Green Funerals uses eco-coffins made from recycled cardboard that combust more quickly during cremation resulting in fewer carbon emissions.

We provide Carbon Offsets for every EcoCremation. The Carbon Offsets include tree planting in Australia with a range of local tree species.

  • As these trees grow, they absorb or 'sequester' carbon dioxide. 
  • These trees also help to replace forests for native animals whose habitats have been destroyed by human industries.
  • We use the Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund to provide this service.

Australian Green Funerals now also makes available Water Cremation, by Aquamation.


Water Cremation (Alkaline Hydrolysis) is a natural process that produces less than 10% of the carbon emissions of traditional fire cremation.

  • During a Water Cremation, the loved one is placed in a potassium hydroxide and water solution that is heated.

Water Cremation, by Aquamation, is an Australian Green innovation, and was a 2015 finalist in the prestigious Australian Technologies Competition.


Following a Water Cremation, your loved one's remains are returned to you in an urn in the form of 'ashes', as with cremation.
