People who have spent their life enjoying the great outdoors may want to memorialize their eternity with a natural burial. A natural burial is when a deceased person is interred in the soil, allowing the natural decomposition of their remains. The body is prepared without embalming fluid and buried in a biodegradable coffin. Varieties of caskets may be made of wood, wicker or cardboard. In a green cemetery, the graves may be placed randomly in a meadow or wooded area with simple markers such as a tree or a flat stone that may or may not be engraved. Burial locations may also be located by future generations with mapping software known as a Graphical Information System.
