Green Cremation is a gentle, eco-friendly alternative to flame-based cremation and casket burials. It is a quiet process that uses water and potassium hydroxide to reduce the body to it's basic element of bone ash. The ashes are then returned to the family. The process was adapted for funeral home use by the Mayo Clinic in its anatomy bequest program and is now becoming available to the general public. Green Cremation is the first and only firm in Minnesota to provide this revolutionary service.
Bradshaw Funeral and Cremation Services, a family-owned and operated business centralized in the Twin Cities, is the first funeral home firm in Minnesota to offer Green Cremation. Since 1972, we have focused on creating meaningful events to celebrate each unique life lived. As innovators in the funeral industry, we are committed to providing state-of-the-art services that distinguish us from other funeral providers. That’s why we are proud to offer a gentle, flameless alternative to traditional cremation.
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.
