Information About Green Burials
Over the years, there has been a significant change in the funeral ceremonies people follow. While most families conduct burials in line with traditional practices, some prefer new traditions in this aspect and opt for green burials.
What Are Green Burials?
We at Wagg Funeral Home like to keep our clients informed about the latest practices and here is some information about green burials:
Green Funeral Basics
A green burial is an eco-friendly process that does not affect nature. In a green burial, the embalmed body is buried in the earth and no formaldehyde is used. The shroud and casket is made from eco-friendly materials. The body decomposes at a slower rate because no chemicals are applied to it. If you are interested in conducting a green burial for a loved one that has passed away, it’s important that you do some research first.
Though the practice still has to gain some momentum, many funeral homes now offer this option and customize their services. You can get all the information you need from the funeral director and decide what works best for you. They can help with organizing everything and will ensure that the green burial takes place, as it should.
Customizing a Green Funeral
As mentioned, a credible funeral home can help tailor these services and you can personalize it in the way you like. These burials typically take place in cemeteries that have larger landscaped areas. If you want to go green entirely, you can plant a tree instead of placing a tombstone on the grave.
