Tarrytown Funeral Home Offers Green Burials, and Cremations
Green burial with Dwyer & Michael’s Funeral Home
As more people are making the conscious choice to practice green living, Dwyer & Michael’s Funeral Home in Tarrytown, offers ways to stay true to those principles in perpetuity.
“A green burial or cremation is an eco-friendly choice,” says manager Michael V. Carpinone. “From graveside services in a natural burial ground with a simple wicker casket, or cremation with the cremains being placed into a biodegradable urn, our staff will inform you of all the options available to honor your loved one’s wishes.”
While Dwyer & Michael’s Funeral Home has been in business since the 1940s, Carpinone’s father bought the business and property in October 2018. Both father and son are New York State-licensed funeral directors, with a combined 50 years’ experience in the business. Together they are dedicated to offering “white glove premium service” customized to fit each family’s wants and financial needs, Carpinone says.
“From the first phone call until the final graveside or cremation service and then after, we handle all aspects involved with final farewell of a loved one,” he says. “What separates us from our competition is we are completely family owned and operated, so a member of our family oversees each service from start to finish, ensuring the highest level of customer service is given. This allows the family to focus on grieving and not worrying about the planning aspect of a service.”
