Simple Professional Affordable
Choosing an earthfuneral assures a professional and affordable funeral with a unique difference – what would normally be profit is instead used to create a living memorial grove to honour the deceased. Acre by acre individual groves combine to create wildlife corridors and restore bushland habitat. In this way, every death contributes to the living environment – completing the circle of life.
There is growing interest in the commonsense practice of natural burial, and earthfunerals is working to create a network of genuine, natural burial grounds across Australia. In natural burial, there is no embalming, plastics or chemicals, and resource use is minimised with a bio-degradable coffin, or shroud. The result is a simple, sustainable return to the earth, at the cost of a cremation.
Most importantly, you can trust earthfunerals to provide honest advice and genuine care – because we are working to make a difference, not a profit.
The Australian Natural Burial Project defines a natural burial ground as;
“a life-centred memorial place, not part of a traditional cemetery model, set aside exclusively for natural burial, and characterised by the existence or restoration of native vegetation. An eco-conscious natural burial ground has a finite active life cycle. Once the burial ground capacity is reached, operational maintenance is replaced by minimal-cost, landscape preservation practices, and the site remains a natural flora and fauna reserve”.
