Want an Eco-friendly burial?
If you’re wanting a natural burial process that encourages a return to the earth over an artificial preservation, explore our green burial options.
Burials are typically considered green if the body is neither cremated nor prepared with embalming chemicals, and the casket is not contained in a concrete vault. Biodegradable caskets and burial shrouds are options in lieu of traditional metal caskets. The goal is complete decomposition of the body and its natural return to the soil.
What makes a green burial different?
With this process, the body naturally decomposes and will eventually return to the Earth. Green burials are founded on the belief that burial practices should have a minimal impact to the environment, should conserve resources, eliminate the use of potentially harmful chemicals, and reduce carbon emissions.
Green burials are not new. Most burials before the mid-19th century were conducted this way.
And if I go,
while you’re still here…
Know that I live on,
vibrating to a different measure
behind a thin veil you cannot see through.
You will not see me,
so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we can soar together
again,both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to its fullest.
And when you need me,
Just whisper my name in your heart,
…I will be there.
