Burials could be natural or green

A natural burial is one in which the "body may be prepared without chemical preservatives or disinfectants such as embalming fluid, which might destroy the microbial decomposers that break the body down, buried in a biodegradable coffin, casket, or shroud", and uses a shallow grave to "allow microbial activity similar to that found in composting." This could alleviate waste, chemical pollution, and health hazards to embalmers and funeral home workers.
