A 21st Century Guide to Green Burials

The Cover of The Guide to Green Burials

What options do you have when deciding on the final resting place for yourself or a loved one? Is there a more “earth friendly” option, something that has less of an impact on the environment? Are there any options for those who wish to go back to basics, to return to a simpler time? More people are seeking burial options that are gentler to the earth, more “old fashioned.” They are moving away from contemporary burial practices and getting back to nature for an experience that is more personal and meaningful. This is green burial.

Green burial is not new, it was only somewhat forgotten in certain parts of the world. But families are beginning to seek an approach to death that feels more natural and meaningful, opting for biodegradable caskets and urns instead of those made of hardwoods or metal. It appeals to a wide range of individuals from those who prefer a more natural approach to life – and death – as well as those who just want something simple without all the fuss.
