Learning More About Green Burials

When it comes to funeral planning, one option you may wish to consider is green burial. Green burial focuses on the use of biodegradable materials in the internment process and is an increasingly popular choice for families planning funeral services for a loved one as well as during the funeral pre-planning process.

Watch this video to learn more about green burial. In an effort to reduce the transfer of metal and other contaminants to ground water, green burial requires a biodegradable casket. Although embalming fluid is used now, there are efforts to create an alternative that does not use formaldehyde.

At Mountain View Funeral Home, Memorial Park & Crematory, we can assist you with any kind of funeral planning in Tacoma that meets your family’s needs and preferences. To find out more, contact our funeral home today at (253) 584-0252.
