What Is a Green Burial?

Green burials are designed to return the deceased to the earth in a more natural way. Some of the features of a green burial include forgoing the use of embalming fluid, using eco-friendly caskets or shrouds made from biodegradable materials such as wicker, bamboo, or wool, and avoiding the use of a grave liner or burial vault. Green burials also typically take place in natural or scenic settings and use sustainable landscaping and native plants in the burial area.

Important Factors To Consider

For those considering a green burial, there are several factors to consider. It’s important to plan and research the laws and regulations in your state, as well as the requirements of the cemetery or burial site. It’s also important to think about the type of casket or shroud you will use, whether it will be a stand-alone burial or if you will use a cemetery plot, and how you will handle the logistics of the burial service.
