– Ask questions about the environmental impact of your choices with regard to final disposition of remains. Choose a funeral home that responds in an appropriate manner.
– Remember that the “greenest” choice is not always the least expensive
– Consider an In Memoriam donation to an environmental fund
– Help the Funeral Information Society of Ottawa (FISO) compile more detailed information on methods of dealing with human remains as it relates to their environmental impact in Ottawa. If you have information on this from a local funeral home, cemetery, or religious organization, please contact us at fiso at ncf dot ca (in the usual form for an email)
