Green Burial seeks to return one’s remains to the earth, as directly and simply as possible. It attempts to avoid embalming (toxic chemicals), metal caskets and burial vaults. Many religious groups never left the old, traditional way. Groups like the Quakers, Amish, Mennonites, and Jewish communities continue to bury without embalming, vaults and in some cases without a casket.
