A Green Burial, or a Traditional Natural Burial, is a burial without chemicals, hardwood caskets, vaults and liners. Graves are shallow to allow organisms to help with decomposition. The land is not treated with herbicides and pesticides to keep it looking green. It is kept in its natural state where native flora can flourish, or it can be planted with wildlflowers or trees and can become places of reforestation.
Please visit the Green Burial Council’s website for information about green burials and a guide to natural and conservation burial grounds across the country.

A Green Burial allows us to give back to the natural world. To leave this life time with as little negative impact as possible. It is our last opportunity to provide a much needed positive impact by planting trees or native plants, by being respectful to the natural world.
Natural burial grounds can create places of reforestation and nurture healthy ecosystems.
