Green Burial Blog
help us spread the word about green burial so we all share in protecting our environment.
As much as we want to live our life to its fullest, as we age and begin to think about the future, it’s important to put some thought into what will happen to us after we pass. It can be overwhelming and it is definitely an emotional journey: thinking about our lives and preparing for what is to be done with our estate, assets, and even our body after we die.
The decision of what to do with your body after you pass may not be on the forefront of your mind. But when it comes to such an important life decision, it’s best to make a choice now while you’re still able to. This will ensure that your wishes will be carried out and there isn’t any guesswork for remaining family members.
At EverAfterly, we want to make your final resting place as beautiful and meaningful as your life has been thus far. While many people choose to go with a traditional burial with a casket and cemetery, many are also looking into what other burial options are available. The EverAfterly team is proud to be able to provide a green burial option that offers a wide range of benefits, such as being more environmentally-friendly, sustainable, produces less pollution, there aren’t any embalming fluids, and more.
In this blog, we hope to be a source of information about green burials, what it involves, and so much more. To begin, here is a little information about who we are, what we offer, and why we believe it’s a great alternative to traditional burials.
What Are Green Burials?
A green burial is an alternative to using embalming fluids to preserve your body until it can be placed in a casket and interred at a cemetery. The process involves your body being wrapped in a biodegradable shroud and then being placed directly into the ground. This allows your body to naturally decompose and return to the earth as nature intended.
What Do We Offer?
EverAfterly provides natural burials through a process that strives to preserve the environment and surrounding ecosystems. Our green burial sites are located in Northern California and are essentially nature preserves. The land has been restored and is preserved through land management techniques that seek to protect area, foliage, and animals.
We also provide digital legacies in which you can build an online profile to share with loved ones. The digital legacy includes social integration, memory sharing, donations, member contributions, plot locator, GPS tracking, and more. This allows loved ones to always have a place to visit when they want to talk or spend time with you and an online space to view pictures, videos, or to share news.
Why Do We Believe in Green Burials?
EverAfterly’s mission is to help restore and protect our natural environment, while also bringing family and friends closer together through the creation of a digital legacy. Traditional burials can be incredibly harmful to the environment by introducing chemicals into the soil, pollution into the air, and disturbing the natural environment through the creation and maintenance of a cemetery. We strive to combat this by offering green burials, a natural alternative that can protect our world for generations.
