Green Burial Options
When choosing a green burial, you can pick whatever options you’re most comfortable with. Choose from options including a variety of settings for viewing, ceremonies, and cemetery services. In some ways, these selections can even nurture the environment.
We have several options available for environmentally friendly preparation of the body. If public viewing is selected, specially formulated chemicals are used for embalming. If no viewing or minimal viewing is selected, the body will be preserved with dry ice.
Green Burial Services
A variety of services are available when you choose green burial – embalming, public viewing, funeral services, graveside services, and memorial receptions. Whether you choose recycled paper for printed materials, a grave in a Green Burial Council certified cemetery, or recycled kitchenware at the reception, how you make it green is up to you.
