NEWS RELEASE: Green Burial


Dokken-Nelson Funeral Service & Crematory Receives Three-Leaf Rating from the Green Burial Council

Hosting Free Green Burial Seminar in Recognition of Earth Day

Bozeman, MONT. (April 10, 2012) Dokken-Nelson Funeral Service & Crematory today announced that it has been certified as a green burial provider by the Green Burial Council, offering end-of-life services that are ecologically conscious to minimize long-term environmental impacts. Dokken-Nelson received this certification with a Three Leaf rating, the highest rating available, making Dokken-Nelson the only Three Leaf provider in Montana.

Dokken-Nelson will host a free seminar titled Understanding Green Burial—in recognition of Earth Day—on Thursday, April 19, from 5:30-6:30pm, and again on Friday, April 20, from 12-1pm, at 113 South Willson Avenue in Bozeman.

Some questions that will be addressed at the seminar include:

  • What is green burial?
  • How can a burial be considered “green?”
  • What options are available for green burial services?
  • What kind of casket is used for green burial?
  • Does the Gallatin Valley have a green burial cemetery?
  • Is green burial more costly than regular burial?

Green burial providers adopt burial and operational practices that are non-toxic and energy conserving, including burial with non-toxic, biodegradable burial containers and burial without the use of formaldehyde-based embalming chemicals.

“Dokken-Nelson has always offered green burial,” says Chris Remely, owner and funeral director at Dokken-Nelson Funeral Service & Crematory. “But we have deepened our commitment to green burial by adhering to the requirements outlined by the Green Burial Council, giving Dokken-Nelson a Three Leaf rating—their highest rating available.”

The Green Burial Council is an independent, nonprofit organization working to encourage environmentally sustainable death care and the use of burial as a new means of protecting natural areas (www.greenburialcouncil.org).

"I just wanted to thank you for all your help with my dad's funeral.  Planning a funeral can be very stressful, but you took such care that we were never confused or stressed about anything.  It was so easy to call and talk with you and ask questions.  You presented all the options to us clearly to let us decide about things, and then you made them happen at the service so we didn't have to do anything.  You are so very good at your job."
