The simple idea behind green burial is to go out naturally and with as little harm to the earth as possible. A green cemetery is often located in a forest, field, or meadow setting. Massachusetts does not yet have a green cemetery, but interest in green burial is steadily growing. The Green Burial Committee, a subcommittee of the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Western Massachusetts (FCAWM), is actively working to raise awareness of this legal burial option. Our goal is to establish a green cemetery in Massachusetts so that all residents may choose a green burial option.
Our outreach efforts bring us to many different groups and venues. We have a speakers bureau available to you or your group to provide a presentation or to lead a discussion about green burial.
