Passages provides you with simple and comprehensive ways to meet the demand of the rapidly growing percentage of families who desire a more eco-friendly funeral. This helps you provide services to a wider range of customers.
Some families might desire traditional cremation, yet want the burial to be in a biodegradable casket, such as one made of woven willow. Others might want to use a biodegradable urn for earth burial of or water burial of cremains.
There are many ways that you can assist families in creating their ritual using one or more Passages products. Eco-friendly caskets can be selected for traditional burials. Water or earth biodegradable urns can be chosen for burial or scattering. If multiple family members or loved ones want to participate in scattering, or create their own small memorials, keepsake-size urns allow these options. Urns, caskets and memorials are available in a variety of natural materials, colors and styles. Many can be customized and personalized.
