Green Burials – Life After Death

Conservation burial, green, or natural burial is a way of giving back after death. Opting for a green burial, in conjunction with a land trust, or natural preserve, reduces the environmental impact that traditional burial methods can create. Using non-toxic, biodegradable materials reduce the carbon footprint we leave behind after we are gone and ultimately contribute to the ecosystem. “Ashes to Ashes, dust to dust….” – this is how civilizations have been caring for the dead for centuries, no metal caskets, no embalming with toxic chemicals, just honoring our beloved by returning them to the earth, and through their death will blossom new life.

The Huffington Post morning show – Rise has highlighted the green burial movement. To get more on this subject, go to the Huffington Post facebook page. green-burials-life-after-death
