Green Burial

What is Green Burial?

According to the Green Burial Council, Green Burial is a way of caring for the dead with minimal environmental impact that aids in the conservation of natural resources, reduction of carbon emissions, protection of worker health, and the restoration and/or preservation of habitat.

Green burial means that the body is buried in a simple biodegradable container with no toxic chemical embalming (which often utilizes formaldehyde and other toxic chemicals). In addition, biodegradable containers are used for burial, and concrete vaults are prohibited.
