Our Meadow plan offers an upgrade to a coffin made of Bamboo, one of the fastest growing and most sustainable crops in the world. The plan also includes the provision of a chapel of rest for family and friends to visit and a limousine for transport to and from the service. All of our green plans include the cost of completely offsetting the carbon footprint of your funeral service by tree planting in conservation areas or by donating funds to preserve endangered rain forests around the world. In addition Golden Leaves contributes on your behalf to an environmental fund that combats climate change for the benefit of future generations. You also have the choice of 3 Natural Memorials.
