NATURAL BURIAL PACKAGE – No Ordinary Funeral Home
What is natural burial?
- Natural burial or green funerals is a movement among those who wish to leave a smaller imprint on the environment
- Caskets are made from hardwoods harvested from renewable forests with environmentally friendly finishes or other natural fibers.
When possible viewing the body of someone who has died is the single most beneficial element to the funeral experience. Presence of the body at some point during the commemoration enables those attending to confirm the reality of this final milestone in life. Grief Counselor, Dr. Alan Wolfelt of Fort Collins, CO says, “This pause between death and the burial or cremation serves to gradually condition survivors to the changed circumstances brought about by death”.
