Lenoir City-based Click Funeral Home is working to make end-of-life arrangements more sustainable with services that reduce the environmental impact of burial.

Requirements include the use of natural cooling, nontoxic approved chemicals and offering environmentally-friendly products, among others.

The company has invested in green options including: natural alternatives to embalming, hand made caskets produced locally without finishes and shrouds made of natural fibers.  Recyclable paper items for cards and guest registry are also offered.
