What is Green Burial?
Green burials have been practiced for centuries and were common until the late 19th century. Green burials do not use a formaldehyde-based embalming. In fact, most green burials do not include embalming. Caskets made of metal or exotic wood, concrete burial vaults or large stone monuments are not used. The deceased body is kept in refrigeration or dry ice is used for preservation and the body is then placed in a casket made of renewable, biodegradable material or wrapped in a fabric shroud before being gently placed directly in the ground. A natural burial is an environmentally sustainable alternative to a conventional burial.
