Old world rituals meet modern day wishes with this special alternative to traditional burial. If Earth burial is not a comfortable choice, allow eco to assist in entombment arrangements in a mausoleum. Often a desire among certain cultural and religious groups, entombment can take place in either outdoor or indoor facilities whereby the casket is placed into a permanent crypt in an above ground structure.

Many people are unaware the above-ground burial is possible by means of entombment. Popular among Island communities and European cultures, a crypt inside a mausoleum can accommodate a casket at any level built above the ground. Commonly misunderstood as too expensive, this option eliminates the need for a burial vault and future monument and can be a responsible option.
