Green Cremation Texas - Austin Funeral Home Offers Environmentally Friendly Options in Austin, TX

Austin, TX – While cremation has always been considered a more environmentally friendly option than traditional embalming, with its growing popularity, a new concern has also emerged that has to do with its high emission of carbon dioxide from the large amount of fuel used for this process, not to mention the costs that have always been characteristic of this type of service, with an average cost of over $4,000, not including other funeral services. 

Green Cremation Texas – Austin Funeral Home is a leading cremation specialist in Austin, TX, famous for offering environmentally friendly cremation services at a very reasonable rate. The company aims to reduce the cremation environmental footprint in death, by making its flame-based cremation process as environmentally friendly as possible; besides reducing using electronic means during the administrative process, the company uses energy-efficient crematoriums, not before removing all medical and end-of-life plastics from the body to avoid the chemicals that they would release during the burning process. The result is no plastics of any kind are incinerated during the cremation process, translating into environmental and human impact. 

“We are Texas’ only carbon-neutral funeral home; we use no paper, utilize electric-hybrid vehicles, and incorporate recycled material throughout the cremation process. Intently focused on providing a high level of care to you and the environment, we aim to return control over the end of life process to you and your family.” Said Melissa Unfred, regarding their unrivaled services.

While their flame-based cremation process is intended to be as much green and affordable as possible, Green Cremation Texas – Austin Funeral Home also offers the most environmentally friendly method of cremation available so far. They specialize in water cremation (also know as aquamation and alkaline hydrolysis), which uses 95% water, 5% alkali solution at elevated heat to break the chemical bonds that hold the body’s proteins together. This process directly replicates the effect of naturally occurring decomposition of traditional earthen burials, returning the body to its constituent elements. Similar to flame-based cremation, there is no DNA to link back to the person and the only solid remains are the bones, which are then pulverized and returned to the family as remains.

Water cremation was first introduced to the public in 2011, and since then, it has been recognized as the greener method of cremation with a number of environmental advantages over traditional burial or flame-based cremation services, including:

  • Fewer harmful toxins are released into the atmosphere. 

  • Medical implants are removed after the cremation, ensuring the Mercury they contain is never released into the air.

  • Water cremation does not release any airborne toxins.

  • Water usage is low. 

  • The lack of a flame is safer both for the operator and the community. 


Despite its many benefits, the water cremation offered by Green Cremation Texas – Austin Funeral Home is still much more affordable than the traditional cremation method offered by most other companies in Austin and the neighboring areas. Green Cremation Texas – Austin Funeral Home is one of the best-rated companies in their field with a 5-star rating on Google, Facebook, Yelp, and Social Rating, as well as an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
