Marana Mortuary & Cemetery is the only green/natural burial provider in southern Arizona. Protecting and preserving the natural beauty of our environment is a priority for us as a resident of this community, and it’s also important to so many of the families in Pima and Pinal Counties. We have over 200 environmentally-friendly options available, so when you think of Marana Mortuary & Cemetery, think of green burials.
For those concerned about the footprint we’re leaving on our planet, green burial is the obvious choice. The way we perform green burials at Marana is much easier on the environment, avoiding the use of toxic chemicals and reducing the amount of carbon emissions released into the atmosphere. This also makes it safer for our staff as well.
If green burial is the option you select, the caskets, shrouds and urns you will choose from will be made only from non-toxic, biodegradable materials, minimizing the impact they will have on the earth’s soils, water, and atmosphere.
You might be surprised to learn that choosing green burial is also a way to focus on simplicity when it comes to your budget. Because of the methods and materials used, the cost can be lower than with a traditional burial. It’s positive for the environment and an amazing way to pay tribute to the concern your loved one had for caring for our planet.
