The concept never crossed my mind, but even funerals are going green these days. So you're a natural kinda person? You'll want to read on. Natural Cemetaries are popping up all over the country. One of the largest, is 2,100 acre monastery in Conyers Georgia, called Honey Creek Woodland Preserve. There are no sealed caskets, concrete vaults, and toxic embalming chemicals. Instead, you have biodegradable coffins, shrouds, even family quilts can cushion your loved one. Family is encouraged to dig the hole, cover your loved one back up with the same dirt you dug out, and plant flowers on the gravesite when done. Actually, you MUST plant vegetation when done and you are encouraged to use native plants to Georgia -- that's the idea of a "natural" grave. Stones from the surrounding landscape are used as tombstones and GPS coordinates are used to find the grave in future visits. My husband found this very, very hard to believe. His comment was, "how 'bout cremation -- isn't that cheap and "green?" Interesting, very interesting.
