Traditional Funeral Services - Green Burial - Graveside - Military Honors

Some Families desire the tradition of ground burial. We provide all the traditional services you'll find at ABC Funeral Home down the street, minus embalming.

Green Burial is a natural way of caring for your loved one with minimal environmental impact. Green Burial aids in the conservation of natural resources, reduction of carbon emissions and the preservation of habitat, WITHOUT the use of harsh embalming chemicals, metallic, plastic or unnatural items.

WE DO NOT CHEMICALLY EMBALM at the Colorado Springs location. No Embalming is done at at Return to Nature Funeral Home.

You can still view your loved one who is NOT embalmed. Embalming is NOT a law. In the state of Colorado within 24 hours the body must be either embalmed or placed in a regulated temperature controlled environment, meaning under refrigeration, dry ice, etc...

Here are some of our Green Burial Options...
