A green burial is generally less expensive and less toxic to the environment. It also permits a more personal and natural relationship between the living and the dead, humans and the land at a time of shock, grief, and confusion.

The 4 core tenets of green burial are:

  1. No Embalming

  2. No Burial Vaults or Grave Liners

  3. No Impervious Containers

  4. Preserves or Restores Natural Habitat

In addition to the messaging service, this website provides a Files section containing documents relevant to green burial in California, and an Information Wiki:
