What Is A Green Funeral?
The essence of a green funeral is natural simplicity. In contrast with the traditional funeral It favours of an outdoorsy, homespun, back-to-nature look.
It prefering an unspoilt landscape to that of a regimented conventional cemetery.
Some of the more important elements of a green funeral are these:
- rejects cremation
- opts for burial in a site serving a conservation purpose
- creates an environment which is not visually definable as a burial ground
- reviles embalming
- requires a coffin or shroud locally made from natural, sustainable materials
- forbids demarcation of the grave
- forbids marking or personalising of the grave with any sort of permanent memorial
- forbids tending of the grave
It is not the grave that commemorates the life lived, it is the entire site.
You can green your funeral with on a variety of ethically sourced coffins which are just as attractive to people who simply like the look of them.
