A stronger more resilient Edmonton happens when Edmontonians are aware of all of their choices surrounding final disposition - knowledge of these options encourages other funeral homes to provide more options to the community.


We hope Edmontonians know they don't have to contribute to the More than 20 million feet of wood, 4.3 million gallons of embalming fluids, 1.6 million tons of reinforced concrete, 17,000 tons of copper and bronze, and 64,500 tons of steel…that goes into our Earth every Year (the US estimates alone).

Further, cremation is relatively benign compared to conventional burial. Still, the average cremation uses 28 gallons of fuel to cremate a single person, emitting about 540 pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

We’re promoting a change, you could even call it a revolution. to the traditional funeral industry and are encouraging people to go back to what’s simple, gentle and environmentally friendly. We’re excited to be the change in Edmonton and hope to inspire other funeral homes to follow suit! This effects 100% of Edmontonians.
