GMCT partner organisation Living Legacy Forest was recognised for its innovative and environmentally-friendly memorialisation technology at the 2016 Banksia Sustainability Awards.

GMCT joined forces with Living Legacy Forest in 2016 to offer a world-first innovation in cremated remains memorials. Using patented technology, cremated remains are converted into micronutrients and infused into the roots of a personally chosen memorial tree, creating a natural, living tribute to a loved one.

Living Legacy Forest was an award finalist for 'Leadership in the Circular Economy’. The awards recognise organisations whose initiatives are an encouragement and an example for others to follow and raise the profile of sustainability issues in Australia.

GMCT is proud to work with Living Legacy Forest towards positive sustainability outcomes.

Living Legacy memorial trees are available exclusively through GMCT at a number of our cemeteries and memorial parks across Melbourne’s north, east and west. In addition, when you choose a Living Legacy tree, Living Legacy Forest will also plant 200 trees locally and abroad in your name with world-leading partners in reforestation.
