Green burial is not only easier on the environment; it can also be easier on your wallet. Generally, green burial involves a biodegradable casket made of wood, bamboo, or wicker and does not include embalming or the use of a concrete burial vault. Some private cemeteries may require a burial vault to maintain an even landscape, so be sure to ask the funeral director about the requirements of your specific cemetery. If you have not already chosen a cemetery, Ohio has several Green Cemeteries (we can recommend one suited to your needs), some that only require a biodegradable casket allowing a more natural return to the earth. If you are interested in green burial we recommend you select our natural Bamboo coffin for your arrangements.
