When you think about it, Jewish burials have always been green—no toxic smoke from cremation, no harsh embalming fluids, and low-impact internment in a simple shroud or wooden casket. Over time, the body breaks down naturally, returning its essence to the earth. With today’s increased focus on minimizing our impact on the environment, the age-old practice of green burial is becoming more popular. In addition to minimizing environmental impact, green burial can provide a simpler, more natural funeral experience, as well as potentially lower costs due to not needing a costly casket or headstone. Instead, a special stone or small shrub can become the marker.
Be aware that natural burial isn't permitted in some cemeteries in the Denver area. However, Feldman Mortuary has longstanding relationships with many that do, and we can help you find the right place for your green burial service. Green burial may be permitted on some privately-owned rural land in Colorado. Our experienced staff can help you navigate local laws and regulations to find out if green burial is available in your location.
