What is a natural funeral?
A “natural funeral” means committing your loved one to the natural land with minimal disturbance to the surrounding environment. For many, the idea of leaving no lasting impact for future generations and being laid to rest in a place of natural beauty is very appealing.
The idea of a natural burial is to return the body to the earth in the most natural and environmentally friendly way. With this in mind, embalming is generally not permitted and any clothing worn by the deceased should be made of natural fibres. The coffin should also be made of sustainably sourced materials, such as wicker, bamboo, carboard or wool.
