What is Green?

How is “green” defined? How about natural, eco-friendly, bio-friendly, earth-friendly, etc.?

With the range of terminology and related definitions in use currently, this can be a challenge. Regarding green products and green burial grounds we take guidance from and adhere to the standards put forth by the Green Burial Council.

The Green Burial Council is an independent, non-profit organization that promotes environmentally sustainable end-of-life rituals. It does so by establishing standards for green burial products and processes, and promoting burial as a means of acquiring, restoring and stewarding natural areas. One, two or three “leaf-ratings” are applied to organizations, reflecting their ability to meet some or all of these established standards.
