The Co-op Funeral Home of People's Memorial is proud to be certified by the Green Burial Council. We provide green burial and cremation services in cooperation with green cemeteries in the state. 

Green burial means:

  • A natural body, no chemical preservation
  • Placement in a biodegradable casket or cloth shroud
  • Burial directly into the soil 
  • No concrete grave liner or vault  
  • A green cemetery is typically graced by native grasses, trees and shrubs 
  • No monuments punctuate the landscape
  • Preserved as a greenspace for future generations to enjoy

Green Cremation

The Co-op Funeral Home of People's Memorial offsets the carbon produced from all of our cremations by investing in wind and solar energy through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation, a Northwest nonprofit.  

In addition, we plant a tree in honor of each person we care for through American Forests.
