Green Cremation: It’s the natural choice
Green cremation is a gentle, eco-friendly alternative to flame-based cremation. Just like with traditional cremation, the body is reduced to ashes, which are then returned to the family. However, no flames are used during the Green Cremation process, making it the more natural choice. Originally developed for the Mayo Clinic, this revolutionary process is now available to the general public through GreenCremation, a service by Bradshaw.
Only available through Bradshaw

Pioneered locally by the mayo clinic
Although it’s just now becoming available to the general public, Green Cremation is not new. In fact, this process dates all the way back to 1888. In February of 2006 the Mayo Clinic began using the process in its anatomy bequest program and then pioneered legislation in the state of Minnesota to make Minnesota the first state to have this green and gentle option available to the general public.
