Carbon Neutral Cremations

The Carbon Footprint of Cremation

Since the 1980s, cremation has been increasing in popularity across the US. To offset its environmental impact, Krause Funeral Home is working with a renewable energy partner. We believe everything we do influences the world around us. To continue to offer cremations to our Milwaukee neighbors, we pledge to offset our firm’s carbon footprint for cremations performed in 2022, just as we have since 2020.

Kenya Clean Water Project

With millions across the world still lacking clean water and Milwaukee being an international hub of water research and technology, Krause has chosen to support clean water projects. For the cremations we performed in 2020, we supported the Kenya Clean Water Project. For the cremations we performed in 2021, we supported the Kenya Clean Water Project and the Ethiopia Clean Water Project. We are proud to be making this important move to go green and save lives. Through these clean water initiatives, we’re joining other eco-conscious brands along with a select group of funeral homes nationwide working to offset the carbon footprint of cremations.
