Milton Fields to Open Two New Sections For Green Burials

PR Newswire

ATLANTA, Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Milton Fields Natural Burial Grounds has announced their intention to open two brand new sections for burial, and will combine the green burials for which they are known with new options to memorialize loved ones.

These new plots allow for green burials for Atlanta residents who pass on. Green burial is an economical and environmentally friendly to lay loved ones to rest. It doesn't involve chemicals or underground vaults that can taint the land or water supply. It's an all-natural way of providing for the final rest of a loved one, which helps to conserve natural resources, reduce carbon emissions, and preserve and restore natural habitats.

Caskets, shrouds and urns used in green burial are bio-degradable, and the Green Burial Certification that goes with it ensures peace of mind for all involved. For over a decade, the Green Burial Council has set standards for funeral homes, cemeteries, burial grounds and products to assure practices are eco-friendly.

These new plots mean more than just additional space in the cemetery, however. "Milton fields have opened two new sections for green burials that now include the option of planting a tree for your loved one," says owner, Jim Bell. This can be an outstanding means of honoring and memorializing those who have passed on, a tree that will grow from their resting place and could live for centuries as a permanent marker of those you love.
