Passages® eco-friendly funeral products give families the opportunity to honor a loved one after their passing with a smaller environmental footprint. We believe that, especially when a person valued sustainability during their life, it is important to have the option for a greener end-of-life ritual. Whether a family chooses to bury or cremate, our caskets and carriers are dignified and suitable to do so in an eco-friendly manner. If cremation is chosen, our biodegradable urns offer a variety of options for ceremonies that return the cremated remains to the earth.

Passages suggests offering memorial trees as the perfect complement to any biodegradable urn or scattering tube. Whether it is planted where the cremated remains of a loved one are scattered or buried, or in your garden at home, the trees provide a lasting and living memorial. As part of The Natural Choice® Memorial Tree Program, a numbered certificate can be used to redeem a 12” tree sapling that is appropriate to your climate and guaranteed for a year to grow. Read more about the program and how it works.
Simply complete the form on our website, including your certificate number, and a tree will be mailed to the address you provide. Memorial trees are a wonderful way to remember a loved one that, if you choose, can grow from the same soil in which a loved one’s remains were laid to rest. Because families receive a sapling instead of seeds, the hardest part of the tree’s life has passed and there is no worry of a seed not germinating.
Each Passages adult casket comes with a free Memorial Tree Certificate that can be redeemed for a live tree.
Memorial Petals are also available and are a perfect addition to a burial at sea or other ceremonies.
