Green or natural burial refers to a specific burial that takes place in the most natural way possible. That means that nobody has embalmed the body beforehand. Additionally, funeral homes do everything possible to make sure that the body can decompose in natural and eco-friendly ways. For example, instead of a traditional coffin, some people choose a biodegradable shroud or no container at all.
