What Is A Green Funeral?
A green funeral is a more environmentally friendly way to be laid to rest. A key difference between a traditional funeral and a green funeral is the use of biodegradable materials such as a bamboo coffin. Overall, the processes involved are gentler on the earth.
In recent years eco-friendly funerals have become more popular amongst those who want their final farewell to involve returning to nature. For some the idea of their final resting place to be in a woodland or wild open space is appealing. Others choose to be closer to home so loved ones can easily visit to pay respects.
