Final Footprint is dedicated to providing education and support to families who wish to care for their own at the time of death. Instead of impersonal, commercial funeral homes, home funerals are becoming more understood and more prevalent. We offer help and advice should you choose this arrangement. Many myths exist surrounding the final arrangements necessary when your loved one dies. Here are several examples: it is perfectly legal to take care of your loved one in their home or yours. Embalming is not required, and is toxic to our earth. You are permitted by laws to transport your loved one from the hospital to your home, and then to a cemetery or crematorium. Final Footprint can provide a biodegradable coffin made sustainably from bamboo, pandanus, banana sheaf and willow. We stand ready to provide families with resources and practical information for conducting a funeral in your own home.
