Green Burials in Albuquerque, New Mexico
Green burials are becoming more significant, piquing the interest of families interested in bringing environmental consciousness to the burial process. Green burials are an opportunity to give back to the land and recycle the body by returning it to earth naturally.
Gabaldon Mortuary is the premier provider of green burials in Albuquerque, NM. We are licensed funeral directors who pay special attention to the awareness of green funerals and can guide you through the entire process of planning a natural burial.
Gabaldon Mortuary is proud to be a member of the Green Burial Council, a non-profit organization that encourages sustainable death care and the use of burial as a means of protecting the Earth’s natural resources.
What is a Green Funeral?
At Gabaldon Mortuary, we provide a number of options for the use of biodegradable products like caskets, shrouds and urns made of eco-friendly materials that reduce the environmental impact of burial. A green burial can include all of the following options:
- No embalming
- Embalming with formaldehyde-free products
- Use of sustainable biodegradable products
- Use of organic flowers
- Natural or green burial
Green burials allow you or your loved one to have a natural return to the earth. Without embalming, the body returns to the earth as quickly as possible. If natural burial is not feasible, we provide cremation services that, while not considered “green”, use fewer resources than conventional burials.
