There is a new kind of burial. It’s called a ‘Green Burial,’ and it’s an eco-friendly service.
What is Green Burial?
Memorial Mortuaries and Cemeteries has dedicated a section of its Memorial Lake View Mortuary and Cemetery as a Green Burial Ground. The section remains in its natural state and meets the guidelines for Green Burial set by the Green Burial Council.
The type of burial focuses on leaving nature untouched with little evidence of man’s signature, using non-toxic chemicals during the body preparation process. Green Burial containers are environmentally friendly, using only natural materials. Burial spaces are dug by hand without any machinery. Finally, Green Burial resting places are in harmony with the native landscape. You or a loved one will be buried in nature surrounded by sagebrush, wildflowers, and wildlife.
The Memorial will be a natural stone that has the names and dates sandblasted in to the rock. Memorial Utah provides everything necessary for a Green Burial.
Green burial containers are eco-friendly and are constructed of bamboo, willow and other natural materials that are chemical-free and contain no metal or artificial mechanisms.
There are also alternative forms of body preparation that do away with formaldehyde-based chemicals.
Private family visitations, church funerals, and graveside services are options that can be arranged within the limited period a Green Burial allows.
