As challenging as it may be now to think about what you’ll do when your loved one is gone, it is often much more difficult to make such choices after a loss.
What is the ecological cost of traditional funeral services? What are the environmental benefits of choosing direct cremation instead?
More and more people are trading caskets for urns when choosing burial options. According to statistics from the Cremation Association of North America, more than half the national population now prefer cremation to traditional burial.
Perhaps your loved one asked to be remembered simply, without fanfare or a big funeral service. Perhaps your family can’t afford the more expensive service packages that are available from many funeral homes. Whatever your reasons, you’re considering arranging cremation without a traditional funeral director.
