Green Burial Options

A natural (or "green") burial  is a simplified and natural way of returning the body to the earth. Natural Burials are low impact, use less energy, and consume fewer resources than traditional burials. 'Going green' often does not involve embalming and is instead focused on making more natural choices such as simple, biodegradable caskets. 

If you have decided upon natural burial in a green cemetery, then you'll choose a naturally-finished casket made of biodegradable materials or a simple shroud. Some green cemeteries require that the selected casket, urn or shroud are made from materials that are biodegradable, non-toxic and harvested in a sustainable manner. 

Natural burial is a statement of personal values for many people who seek to minimize their impact on the planet. For people who are mindful of the cyclical nature of life, natural burial is a spiritually fulfilling alternative to the conventional funeral.

To support natural burial options, Jordan-Fernald offers "green" certified caskets from the Matthews Natural Choice selection.
