Green Burial Kingston Options
Burial is one of the oldest customs known to mankind. Historically, many civilizations chose to bury their deceased for a variety of reasons and in a diverse range of locations around the world. Culture to culture the practices vary, however, concerns for the environment have led many to question the continuation of direct burial. As a response, our funeral home has developed a new type of burial service option that serves as an environmentally conscious alternative to traditional methods.
Our green burial options are both environmentally friendly and were created with the family in mind. When it comes to green burial in Kingston, we are a leader in providing area families with options and quality care. Below you will find more information about these green burial options, so that you can make a knowledgeable and informed funeral planning decision.
How Does a Green Burial Work?
A natural burial (or green burial) is a simplified and natural way of returning the body to the earth. Natural Burials are low impact, use less energy, consume fewer resources than traditional burials. 'Going green' often does not involve embalming and is instead focused on making more natural choices such as simple, biodegradable caskets.
If you have decided upon natural burial in a green cemetery, then you'll choose a naturally finished casket made of biodegradable materials or a simple shroud. Some green cemeteries require that the selected casket, urn or shroud, are made from materials that are biodegradable, non-toxic and harvested in a sustainable manner.
