Natural and Green Burials

Natural burials, also known as 'green burials', are quickly becoming a popular alternative among our community. Materials used for traditional coffins are usually made out of non-biodegradable materials, meaning that they cannot be broken down by the action of living organisms.

However, at a natural burial site, all materials that are used for a coffin or casket are biodegradable, ensuring these can be broken down by bacteria and living organisms.

Not only are natural burials more environmentally friendly, but they give people the ability to reconnect with the earth naturally and gently. This ensures there is minimal impact on the surrounding native bushland, while still providing loved ones with a beautiful place to remember.
