The Evans staff recognizes that preservation of our earth is extremely important. Many of us are using reusable grocery bags, buying organic and doing all we can to reduce our carbon foot print, why not make an eco-friendly choice that will benefit the earth forever by choosing Green Burial?
A green burial ensures the burial site remains as natural as possible in all respects. Interment of the body is done in a bio-degradable casket, shroud, or a favorite blanket. No embalming fluid is used, no traditional casket or concrete vault. The simplicity of a green burial is in tune with nature and need not be expensive.
The caskets used to enclose and transport your loved one are made of bio-degradable materials and are available in such materials as wicker and wood.
Green Burial does not employ any chemical treatment (embalming) of the body. Due to the availability of onsite refrigeration, we are able to hold the remains to provide time for family and friends to gather for a service.
If green burial is in keeping with your personal values, we will be pleased to assist you in making this option a reality for you, or for a loved one. Please call us at (410) 665-9444 to speak with a funeral professional about your decision to "go green."
