Green or Natural Burial Explanation

As with the concept of "green" in business in general, green or natural in funeral service means practicing environmental consciousness and being eco-friendly. This may include no embalming or embalming with formaldehyde free products; use of sustainable biodegradable clothing, shroud or casket; using recycled products, using recycled paper products, locally grown organic flowers, organic food, or gathering in a home or natural setting; and the use of natural burial practices as cemeteries allow.

This picture is a natural burial that our funeral home did recently at one of our local cemeteries in Sheboygan. To meet the cemetery requirement, and  the family's desire for a natural; burial, the outer burial container that is shown is non-sealing and has openings within it to allow the elements to enter.

The Spirit Tree is an earth friendly carbon neutral burial option. The concept is quite beautiful actually. The biodegradable cinerary urn is outfitted with a ceramic top perforated with hydration holes. The bottom is a combination of peat moss, dirt, wood chips and post consumer paper that is biodegradable. The cremated remains and the seed of the tree, or any plant of your choice are added to the interior of the urn and then it is placed in the earth outdoor in a fertile location. The ceramic top is weathered away over a long period of time and the tree grows up through the center from within as a living memorial to your loved one.
