The cost of every Earth Direct cremation includes a tree planting component to offset the carbon footprint of the service provided, as well as a Legacy contribution to fund environmental restoration.
Many families are pleased to learn that they can take this idea further with a Legacy Bequest. This is a tax-deductible donation (entirely separate to the cost of a cremation service) that funds native flora planting and preservation in a dedicated area of one of our Memorial Forest sites.
A Legacy Bequest creates a significant, permanent living memorial – a tribute to the life of the loved one and a gift to their descendants and the planet.
Legacy Bequests vary in size, and it is even possible to make a bequest to offset the carbon footprint of an entire life (contact us for more details). Select from one of the Bequest Packages below:
A $1,000 (tax-deductible) donation to the Earth Legacy Trust.
A $3,000 (tax-deductible) donation to the Earth Legacy Trust.
A $6,000 (tax-deductible) donation to the Earth Legacy Trust.
