Green burials

While traditional burials are costly and take a toll on the environment, green burials offer a new alternative. In a green burial, the body is placed into the earth naturally, without the use of a metal casket or burial vault. The purpose of a green burial is to allow the body to naturally return to earth, similar to how humans were buried in ancient times. This is a more affordable, eco-friendly choice.
