Lately, I’ve been contemplating death more than I usually do. Maybe it’s the war in Ukraine, which has reminded us how quickly and unexpectedly things can change… Death is a natural part of life, and yet, so many of us don’t prepare for this inevitability. We know it’s coming and yet we hope that it’s not, for ourselves and our loved ones, or at least not for a very long time. There are so many things we can do to live lightly on the planet, and there are also a number of steps we can take to “die lightly” too – to reduce our negative impacts on the earth – one last time.
Greensprings Natural Cemetery Preserve provides a local, environmentally-friendly burial alternative to traditional caskets and embalming. Whether you are preparing for the culmination of your own life or contemplating funeral and burial options for a loved one, consider ways to make the transition “green”. I, for one, can not imagine a more beautiful, natural setting than that offered at Greensprings.
