Green Tribute, an option for ecological funerals.
By purchasing a Green Tribute Funeral Plan, your ashes will rest in an area of environmental conservation, such as the Amazon jungle or the mangroves of the Colombian Pacific.
From the moment you acquire the Plan, a percentage of the cost goes towards financing environmental conservation and children’s education projects in the places we work.
A traditional funeral has many negative effects on the environment:
- Cemeteries can cause contamination of underground water with the leachate from bodies or the chemical substances used for embalming.
- Coffins tend to be made from non-biodegradable materials, or materials that take many years to biodegrade.
- The production of some wooden coffins contributes to the indiscriminate felling of forests.
- In Colombia, bodies buried in cemeteries must be exhumed after four years. This process can have strong psychological effects on the family, reopening the wounds of grief.
Green Tribute, on the other hand, offers an environmentally friendly funeral, by promoting cremation.
Green Tribute guarantees its clients that the relevant percentage of the cost of their funeral plan is being invested in the areas and projects chosen.
Green Tribute keeps its clients, family and/or friends informed of how the environmental and educational projects are evolving in each region.
