A Carbon-Neutral Funeral Home

Respectful Service Planning at Every Stage

Green Cremation Texas is here for you and your family at every stage. We’re equipped to provide services quickly when the unexpected occurs or advance planning for those who want complete control over the arrangements.

Our Mission

Founded in 2018, the mission of Green Cremation Texas is to empower families through the thoughtful adoption of technology and innovation, reducing the stress and environmental impact brought on by traditional funeral practices. We do this through empathetic, big-hearted support coupled with an unique approach to cremation.

We are Texas’ only carbon-neutral funeral home; we use no paper, utilize electric-hybrid vehicles, and incorporate recycled material throughout the cremation process. Intently focused on providing a high level of care to you and the environment, we aim to return control over the end of life process back to you and your family.

We are a fully-licensed funeral home with 20 years of industry experience. Melissa, our licensed funeral director, is a proud supporter of both the National Home Funeral Alliance and the Funeral Consumers Alliance.
