Natural Burials

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.
