What Is Green Burial?

Green, or Natural Burial is focused on reducing the environmental impact on the earth. All materials used in the process, including the casket, shroud, and even clothing, is made up of biodegradable materials. Concrete vaults and grave liners are not used and there are generally no traditional monuments erected to mark the grave. Instead, a communal boulder, plaque, garden or fence is erected for memorialization. In some cases, an indigenous plant or rock can be placed at the gravesite.
