Eco-Sensitive Tributes

Funérailles écologiques

We offer funeral rituals that are both respectful of our environment and are ecologically sensitive using eco-friendly products, such as urns and coffins made of natural, fair materials and that contain little or no metallic elements. Our concern for the environment is reflected in many everyday initiatives.
