What are green options available?

Cemetery burial

A cemetery burial is done in a natural way where the body can break down and return to the earth. The body or ashes will be buried in a container that will biodegrade over time.

Ocean burial

A body or ashes may be buried at sea in an acceptable container or scattered at least three nautical miles from land. The container must not contain plastic of any kind, float, or otherwise contribute to marine debris.

Scatter garden

A scattering garden is a designated area in a cemetery where cremated remains are meant to be scattered. The ashes are a natural, eternal fertilizer for the flowers and plants, and serve as a living memorial for those who wish to be cremated. Families often choose to scatter a portion of their loved one’s remains in a cemetery scattering garden because it gives them a place to gather to remember the one who has passed away.

Memorial Garden

There are many types of biodegradable urns, such as earth, sand or salt urns. For a garden, a blooming bio-urn could be a perfect option. It is a biodegradable urn created from recycled materials in the United States with blooming expression perennial wildflowers seeds in it.
