North American burial practices are changing. Growing numbers of people are seeking simpler and more natural ways of returning to the earth. Today’s natural burial movement emphasizes a number of practices: dignified care for the body at the time of death, normally without embalming; attention to environmental concerns when practicing cremation; burial in simple coffins or shrouds; and an intentional return to the earth, with some burials offering legal protection for ecological burial preserves.
