Green Burials: $4,995.00
Green Burial seeks to return one’s remains to the earth, as directly and simply as possible. It attempts to avoid embalming (toxic chemicals), metal caskets and burial vaults. Many religious groups never left the old, traditional way. Groups like the Mennonites, Quakers, Amish, and Jewish communities continue to bury without embalming, vaults and in some cases without a casket. Our parent company pioneered this movement in Southern Virginia. Working with groups like the Green Burial Council, Santa Fe, NM and Wildlands, Inc., Rocklin, CA.. If you're doing study regarding this and other Ecological issues, Dr. Norman Wirzba pursues research and teaching interest at the intersections of theology, philosophy, ecology and agrarian and environmental studies (click here), at Duke University.
