Natural and Green Burials
Natural burials, also known as 'green burials', are quickly becoming a popular alternative to traditional burials
The materials that are used for traditional burials are usually made out of non-biodegradable materials. This means that they cannot be broken down by the action of living organisms. However, at a natural burial site, all of the materials that are used are biodegradable, including biodegradable coffins and caskets.
This ensures these can be broken down, reducing the impact on the environment
Not only are green burials more environmentally friendly, but they also give people the ability to reconnect with the earth naturally and gently.
This ensures minimal impact on the surrounding native bushland, while still providing loved ones with a beautiful place to pay their respects.
Identified and marked by trees, each burial position also gives families the opportunity to be at one with nature while visiting. Recognition options within Murrun Naroon are consistent with maintaining the area's native integrity, using only natural materials that seamlessly blend with the surrounding bushland.Download our Natural Burial Environmental Standards
