I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love. If you want me again look for me under your boot-soles.
According to the Green Burial Council, Green Burial is a way of caring for the dead with minimal environmental impact that aids in the conservation of natural resources, reduction of carbon emissions, protection of worker health, and the restoration and/or preservation of habitat.
Green burial means that the body is buried in a simple biodegradable container with no toxic chemical embalming (which often utilizes formaldehyde and other toxic chemicals). In addition, biodegradable containers are used for burial, and concrete vaults are prohibited.
Natural Grace Funerals is among a select group of funeral homes approved by the Green Burial Council, a nonprofit organization that encourages the use of burial as a means of facilitating the restoration, acquisition, and stewardship of natural resources.
