At Phaneuf Funeral Homes and Crematorium, we strive to be as environmentally conscious and earth friendly as possible. There are many areas within our processes and business practices where we have gone green and it is part of what makes our company unique. The act of cremation itself is a natural, earth friendly process and we carry it out with the utmost care and consideration for the deceased, the family, and the environment, all while complying with state laws.
Simply put, the body is reduced to small bone fragments – and those small bone fragments are given to the family. The body is not embalmed. It is placed in a rigid cremation container that is completely consumable, which is then placed in the cremation chamber. There is no waste and none of our processes are harmful to the environment.
