Green Burial

At Windsor Healdsburg Mortuary & Crematory, we are committed to providing compassionate end-of-life services with a strong focus on the ideals and values of our loved ones and their families.  Often times that includes environmental sustainability. Located in the picturesque landscapes of California, our green burial funeral home services offer a serene, eco-conscious alternative to traditional funeral services. Discover how we can help you honor your loved one's memory while caring for the environment.

Why Choose Green Burial?

  • Eco-Friendly: Our green burial options prioritize sustainability, ensuring minimal impact on the environment. To reduce their environmental impact green burials use fewer resources and produce less pollution than traditional burials. For example, they do not require embalming, which uses formaldehyde, a toxic chemical thus causing minimal environmental disruption 
  • Natural Beauty: Experience the beauty of California's scenic landscapes in serene natural burial grounds. Green burials often take place in natural cemeteries, which are designed to preserve the natural environment. These cemeteries may have meadows, forests, or other natural features.
  • Peaceful Reflection: Green burials offer a tranquil setting for reflection and connection with nature.
  • Legacy and Memory: For some, a green burial represents a legacy of environmental stewardship and a way to be remembered for their commitment to ecological responsibility.

Our Services:

  • Green Burial: Choose from a range of green burial options, allowing your loved one to return to nature in a sustainable and beautiful way.
  • Eco-Friendly Caskets: We provide environmentally responsible casket options made from biodegradable materials. These caskets are typically made of wood, bamboo, or wicker. Shrouds are made of cloth or other natural materials.
  • Memorial Services: We offer customizable memorial services to celebrate your loved one's life and legacy. Green burials often use simple grave markers, such as a fieldstone or a native plant.
