What is Green Burial (Natural)?

Green burials allow the deceased to return naturally to the earth in a way that protects the environment. Green burials conserve natural resources, reduce carbon emissions and preserve local ecosystems. This provides for a meaningful, simple and suitable burial.


If you chose a more eco-friendly burial, you may choose to forgo embalming or choose embalming with formaldehyde-free products to help preserve the body. Gabaldon Mortuary has special refrigeration units available to the family to allow time for friends and family to arrange services.

Certified Green Burial Products


Gabaldon Mortuary carries certified biodegradable products such as caskets, shrouds and urns. These products are made with eco-friendly materials and can reduce environmental impact.

One must consider the cemetery when planning the final disposition of your loved one. Some cemeteries require vaults or concrete graveliners that prohibit the natural process of the body returning to the earth naturally.


In general, cremation is not considered a green, eco-friendly process, however, it does use fewer resources than conventional forms of disposition.
