quotes

Melissa and Kermit, I can not express how grateful I am to have found them. They were so helpful, Melissa explained everything in full detail, and I felt as if they treated us like family! Kermit is a special dog, and we were so comforted by his presence.

Melissa was there from start to finish, and we loved the attention we received from Kermit the Grief Therapy Dog.

H. Jasper

quotes

We found Melissa in June 2015. Melissa was very helpful and available to my whole family when we needed her. She explained everything in detail and she was a pleasure to work with in a very sad time in all of our lives. I would highly recommend Melissa Unfred.

Green Cremation Service That Preserves Natural Beauty

We’re proud to be Texas’ only carbon-neutral funeral home. We offer Austin cremation only no service options that give you peace of mind all around. Residents in Austin can appreciate our dedication to protecting the natural beauty of Texas while honoring their loved ones.

Two Green Cremation Options in Austin

Water Cremation – This is a newer type of direct cremation in Austin that uses a water solution with elevated heat rather than flames. The process replicates natural decomposition in a much shorter period of time and is the most environmentally friendly type of cremation.

Clean Flame Cremation – We use a unique process to ensure our flame cremation is as clean as possible. From transport to the use of pure cotton sheets for wrapping to storing the remains, each part of the process decreases the environmental impact. Even though additional steps and precautions are taken, it’s still an option for low-cost cremation in Austin.

You can choose to have the ashes stored in an environmentally friendly scattering tube or choose from our selection of biodegradable funeral urns in Austin.

Transparent Austin Cremation Cost

How much is cremation in Austin? The average cost of cremation in Austin can exceed $4,000 without factoring in funeral services. At Green Cremation Texas we are transparent and upfront about our Austin direct cremation costs so there’s one less thing you have to worry about.

There’s a significant difference between cheap cremation and low-cost cremation in Austin. Green Cremation Texas offers Austin low-cost cremation that includes all of the essentials without unnecessary extras that increase the price. It allows us to provide exemplary service at a rate that’s affordable.

Austin funeral costs for traditional services are increasingly getting higher and higher without additional benefits. Those services can also be very harmful to the environment over time. You can save money and environmental damage with our clean cremation services.

Melissa and Green Cremation were wonderful to work with during this very difficult time. She was respectful and very professional but at the same time gentle and understanding of our grief. I highly recommend her and Green Cremation.

I contacted Green Cremation Texas when my mother was first diagnosed. I knew I did not want any pressure to have her embalmed prior to cremation. I was referred through another business associate. Right away I was pleased with the information on the website. A place with a dog always works for me. There was never any pressure at all. No surprise or redirection that I was interested in assisting with shrouding my mother. It was comforting and relaxing because I was not stressed about what was going to happen next. We were kept informed through the entire process. Thank youread more

Melissa was such a saint at this tragic time for our family. She was very diligent and tact, especially when dealing with the medical examiners, whom persistently drug their feet. She made herself available to us at any time. I don’t know what we would’ve done without her.

I have been aware of Melissa's breadth of knowledge and influence on the world of natural burial, but this is the first time I have worked with her. We worked seamlessly together to transport a loved one half way across the country, and she participated in all steps of the process with a loving heart, a generosity of spirit, and steady demeanor. Melissa demonstrated to me that funeral professionals can work well together and handle all needs of the family they have the privilege to serve.read more
