What Is Green Burial?

A green burial or an eco-friendly burial is the most environmentally friendly final resting place. This type of burial has minimal impact on the environment and aids in the conservation of natural resources. Green burials use biodegradable materials that are non-toxic that leave little impact on the earth.

 

You can choose to be buried in a green cemetery. Those that are certified by the Green Burial Council or similar organizations preserve the surrounding habitat by making eco-friendly choices about the management and care of the land as well as using biodegradable and nontoxic items, including embalming fluid and caskets.

 

Other forms of natural burials include cremation. When compared with a traditional burial, and you can choose from urns and other materials that are also non-toxic and biodegradable.

 

Benefits of Eco-Friendly Burials

There are many benefits to a green burial. Not only do they have a minimal impact on the land, but they also reduce the amount of carbon emissions, protect workers’ health, and can lead to the restoration or preservation of the land.

 

Eco-friendly burials also involve fewer (and, in the best cases, no) toxic or hazardous chemicals. Traditional embalming fluid, for example, is very toxic and even includes known carcinogens. This can cause harm to the funeral home directors who interact with it.

 

Another benefit of eco-friendly burials is that they can reduce the imprint of cemeteries on the land. Traditional burial sites fill up fast, requiring expansion or new sites to be built. These sites can then never be used again for burial or for anything else; green sites may eventually be used for other purposes or can lead to preservation in the future, preventing large companies from building on the land.
