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 take its 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.
