Green Burial

Green Burial Council Logo

Green or Natural burial is for the environmentally friendly or those who prefer simplicity over traditional service. Green burial is the interment of the body in the ground in a manner that does not inhibit decomposition, allowing the body to recycle naturally. By using environmentally friendly caskets or burial shrouds, a respectful burial can take place. Visitations and funeral ceremonies can still be performed prior to a green burial.

We are the only funeral home in Clark County who is certified by the Green Burial Council. We are one of a select number of funeral homes in the country who meet the criteria for providing green funeral service by the Green Burial Council; a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization working to encourage environmental sustainability in the field of funeral services.

Our green package allows for a funeral to take place without the use of toxic and non-biodegradable materials/chemicals. It includes our services for body preparation, storage, transportation, burial shroud, and the filling out of all necessary documentation, permits and certificates. Eco-friendly caskets are available at an additional cost.

Nestled just outside of Yellow Springs, Ohio in Glen Forest Cemetery is an environmentally-sustainable burial option. Here, human remains are allowed to decompose naturally and recycle into new plant life.
