Dwyer & Michael’s Launches Hudson Green Funeral Services in Tarrytown
Dwyer & Michael’s Funeral Home, which serves Westchester, Rockland, Orange, Putnam and Dutchess Counties, along with the five boroughs of New York City and Long Island, has formed a sister company,Hudson Green Funeral Services, dedicated solely to offering eco-friendly funerals.
“From graveside ceremonies in a natural burial ground to cremation with biodegradable and living plant urn options, our team is fully versed on all the requirements of a green funeral,” says Manager Michael V. Carpinone.
A green funeral service minimizes negative environmental effects by forgoing formaldehyde-based embalming, skipping concrete vaults, rethinking burial containers and maintaining and protecting the natural habitat, Carpinone says.
“Choices can be made at each step of the death-care process to limit waste, reduce the carbon footprint and even nourish the local ecosystem,” he explains. “We’re here to guide you and continue to provide the highest standards and affordable services for our community and to the families that we serve.”
Dwyer & Michael’s Funeral Home has been in business since the 1940s and has been owned by Carpinone’s father since 2018. Both Carpinones are funeral directors licensed in New York State.
