Green burial, or natural burial, ensures the burial site remains as natural as possible in all respects. No embalming fluid and no concrete vaults are used. A natural burial site for your loved ones promotes growth of native trees, shrubs and wildflowers, in turn bringing birds and other wildlife to the area. Water is not wasted nor pesticides used in efforts to control nature. Instead, a green cemetery allows nature to bloom. Planting native trees, shrubs, and flowers in your loved one’s honor promotes habitat restoration. To encourage land preservation, a green cemetery grants a conservation easement for the burial site.
Please talk to your Bleitz Funeral director for information about how to give your loved one this farewell.
