Green burial meets a growing demand for alternatives to conventional burials in the United States, which are more expensive and have a considerable impact on the environment. A green cemetery sets aside open space for natural habitat, while at the same time encouraging the public to visit a beautiful spot that will be a destination for generations to come. Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust and the Green Burial Massachusetts are working together to find suitable land for Massachusetts first green cemetery.
Green Burial Massachusetts (www.GreenBurialMA.org) is a project of the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Western Massachusettts and Eastern Massachusetts. Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust (www.MountGrace.org) has protected more than 27,000 acres across central and western Massachusetts since 1986.
