Maryland Green Burial is a Maryland based company set up to oversee the implementation and authentication of green or “natural” burials held in both urban and rural cemeteries in Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware.  Maryland Green Burial is designed to set particular guidelines in order to preserve the beauty of nature while utilizing materials deemed as natural in and with the funeral and burial service. 

 green burial will ensure that natural materials are used in the burial process and that those material are   either biodegradable or exist naturally in the Delmarva region. 

What is "Green Burial"?

Green Burial is an environmentally friendly burial option, free from the carbon emissions produced through the cremation process or the use of heavy machinery to facilitate the interment. A green burial takes place in a specially designated "green cemetery" or "natural burial ground", where burial vaults and traditional embalming chemicals are not to be used. A fully biodegradable casket made from sustainable materials is placed directly into the earth where nature is allowed to take its course.

Maryland Green Burial aspires to recognize affiliated cemeteries and organizations along with those not affiliated with MGB.
