Natural and Green Burials
Natural burials, also known as 'green burials', are quickly becoming a popular alternative among our community.
Materials used for traditional burials are usually made out of non-biodegradable materials. This means 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.
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.
Identified and marked by trees, each burial position 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.
At Murrun Narroon, environmental standards are followed to ensure that natural burials are able to give essential nutrients back to the soil. Doing this promotes life to the native Australian foliage and bushland environment.
Organic and recyclable materials, such as:
