What is Green Burial?

Green Burial is an environmentally sensitive practice where the body is returned to the earth to decompose naturally and contribute to environmental renewal. It’s a spiritually fulfilling alternative to conventional burial, especially for people who are mindful of the cyclical nature of life. This form of burial has been practiced since the dawn of human civilization.

A body is prepared for Green Burial without embalming and buried in a biodegradable shroud, simple container or casket made from natural fibre, wicker or sustainably harvested wood.
