Green Burial Services Available in the Lehigh Valley
Cantelmi Funeral Home is now offering green burial services and products at their Fountain Hill location. According to the Green Burial Counsel, a green natural burial is a way of caring for the deceased with minimal environmental impact that aids in the conservation of natural resources, reduction of carbon emissions, protection of funeral worker health, and the restoration and/or preservation of habitat. Green burial necessitates the use of non-toxic and biodegradable materials, such as caskets, shrouds, and urns.
“We offer funerals as unique as the life lived, where a loved one’s journey is recognized and respectfully honored”, states second generation Funeral Director Dino Cantelmi. “Gathering with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to share memories, express emotions, and find comforting support. We are just a phone call away to answer any questions you may have concerning green funerals or cremation arrangements, pre-planning, monument design and aftercare resources for families. We can also help with pet cremation arrangements.”
