Green burials - also known as natural burials - are increasingly popular. As simple as cremation, yet as ritualistic as traditional burials, green burials are environmentally friendly, and, in some cases, more economical than traditional funerals.
Green burials take place in green cemeteries without the use of vaults or outer burial containers. Refrigeration replaces embalming, and caskets are comprised of biodegradable materials such as wood.
SouthCare works with primary green burial sites across the state of Georgia. Funeral rites can be the same as traditional burials, and can include a private viewing, ceremony or graveside service.
