Green funerals

Green funerals in Adelaide and South Australia are growing in popularity and are becoming much easier to organise. Most funeral directors will help you to choose the right coffin and there are some beautiful natural burial sites. As a funeral celebrant specialising in green funerals, I know that it is about much more than choosing the right coffin. We want to make sure our final acts and choices reflect that commitment. Some of those choices are obvious (for example, the materials used for the coffin), but you want a service that reflects your life’s philosophy too.

My interest in supporting green funerals in Adelaide comes from many things. My parents left me a small share in a heritage block in the Flinders Ranges. It has no material value because it cannot be ‘developed’ or sold for profit, but it is a true treasure. In my twenties I became a vegetarian and marched in anti-nuclear rallies led by Peter Garrett. I find peace in the smell of a lemon-scented gum and the sound of the waves. I know that green funerals in Adelaide and South Australia go far deeper than the tangible choices that people will see. As a funeral celebrant, I craft ceremonies that truly reflect your life’s philosophy.
