It's Really Natural 'Green' Burial Friday!

NaturalburialOkay - it's Friday and time for something a bit different here at ReallyNatural.com - our natural Friday! We've found this somewhat disturbing yet interesting article on natural burial which is currently all the rage in dying. If you'd like to get buried without being embalmed and really sink into the earth after a few years this is the way to go. :-)

The 93-acre Greensprings Natural Cemetery is the first of its kind in New York and one of just a handful in the United States, where interest in "green" burial is just taking root. "It's so sensible," he said. "Putting bodies in a waterproof, permanent container protected from the environment, it's ridiculous." At Greensprings, where a plot costs $500 plus a $350 fee to dig the grave, bodies cannot be embalmed or otherwise chemically preserved. They must be buried in biodegradable caskets without linings or metal ornamentation.
