Green Burial

A green burial is a type of Final Disposition that seeks to minimize the environmental impact of the Burial process.

It involves interring the deceased's body in a way that allows it to decompose naturally, without the use of Embalming chemicals, metal Caskets, or concrete Burial Vaults.

Green burial typically involves the use of biodegradable materials, such as shrouds or caskets made from natural materials like bamboo or wicker.

Some green burials take place in a natural setting, such as a meadow or forest, without any grave markers or headstones, but others take place in Cemeteries specifically created for natural burials. .

No matter where the body is buried, the goal is to allow it to return to the earth as naturally as possible.

Green burial is often chosen by those who are environmentally conscious or want to return their body to the earth in a way that is consistent with their beliefs or values.

It may also help reduce the cost of a Funeral because green burials requires fewer materials and services than a traditional burial, or even traditional Cremation.
