What is a green burial?
Simple and natural. Green burial, or natural burial, ensure the burial site remains as natural as possible in all respects. Interment of the deceased is done in a bio-degradable casket, shroud, or a favorite blanket. No embalming fluid, no concrete vaults.
Burial vs. Cremation
A green burial is a cremation alternative, and an alternative to burial practices in the United States. It is an earth friendly option when considering burial vs. cremation. Many families choose cremation because it is seen as more environmentally friendly than traditional burial. Though traditional memorial parks may require burial vault, a green cemetery or memorial nature preserve does not. The simplicity of a green burial is in tune with nature.
