Denver Offers Community Earth-friendly Funeral Options

HeartDignity Memorial locations in Littleton and Boulder, both members of the Green Burial Council, now offer the first Green Burial Council approved funeral and cremation products and services in the Denver area. These unique options are designed to provide customers with a wider range of memorialization options. Earth-friendly products include caskets, urns and clothing, as well as eco-conscious tribute options.

Dignity Memorial currently provides green services and products through two of its Colorado facilities:

  • Olinger Chapel Hill Mortuary and Cemetery, Littleton
  • Crist Mortuary and Crematory, Boulder

Through its partnership with Colorado Open Lands, a nonprofit land conservation organization, both locations will offer customers the opportunity to establish an honorarium for family and friends to donate on behalf of their loved one.

“Colorado is a land of unparalleled natural beauty, and the people who live here are devoted to the great outdoors,” said Tom Hendler, Market Managing Director. “Individuals who love nature and respect the environment want to honor those values at the end of their lives. We want to provide our customers with earth-friendly products, services and tributes that reflect that commitment.”

Eco-friendly tribute options offer Denver area residents a way to commemorate their loved one’s commitment to the natural environment.

Through a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, families may have approximately one acre of trees planted and registered in a national forest.  The Boulder and Littleton locations also offer participation in the Sea Oats community reef, a system of environmentally safe concrete domes that provides new marine habitats.

“Dignity Memorial’s approach to offering eco-friendly funeral practices and products is one of the most thoughtful and thorough ones to date,” said Joe Sehee, Executive Director, Green Burial Council.  “It’s the kind of environmental leadership we hope to see more of in this field.”

The Dignity Memorial network of more than 1,800 funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers is North America’s largest network of funeral and memorialization services. Dignity Memorial providers offer an unmatched combination of products and locations serving families with care, integrity, respect and service excellence.
