Green Funeral

Green Funeral |

A green funeral, or green burial, refers to the natural burial option that has a decreased impact on the environment compared to traditional burial. Special biodegradable embalming fluids permit your family time for a short viewing. Interment is in a biodegradable casket, or a fiberboard alternative container, wrapped in a shroud or favorite blanket. By using ecologically compatible methods, your loved one can be interred in the soil in a manner that does not inhibit decomposition and allows nature to takes it's course. This all natural burial site allows for the growth of trees, shrubs, and wildflowers instead of manicured grass that require pesticides to control nature.
