  • The specifics of green burials vary widely, but typically they require far fewer resources for the care of the body and skip a number of the traditional steps, making them better for the environment. Plus, they can save families on funeral costs. Interest in these pared-down, eco-friendly options has grown as people look for ways to cut their carbon footprint. For example, nearly 54% of Americans are reportedly considering a green burial, and 72% of cemeteries are reporting an increased demand, according to a survey released earlier this year by the US National Funeral Directors Association.
