GBC Standards for Burial Containers
The Green Burial Council, or GBC, sets eco-friendly standards for people who are interested in green burial services for a lost loved one or who wish to make green burial part of their own funeral pre-planning. At Mountain View Funeral Home, we can help you make the appropriate arrangements to meet GBC standards during the funeral planning process. Here is a closer look at the GBC requirements for burial containers.
To meet GBC standards, burial containers must be made of plant-derived, natural, unfired earthen, or recycled plant-derived materials. Fasteners and handles made of other materials can be used, as long as they are not used excessively or inefficiently, except for brass and chrome. Any finishes, dyes, or adhesives used should not release toxic by-products.
