Green Burial

Green or natural burial is a form of interment designed to have minimal environmental impact. Only decomposable caskets and biodegradable urns are used and there are no cement vaults. No embalming fluids are used as they contain toxic substances such as formaldehyde. 

Eternal Meadow is the section of Woodlawn devoted exclusively to green/natural burial. It is a naturalistic wildflower meadow consisting of native California plants that provides habitat for the region's native birds and pollinator insects like the endangered Monarch butterfly. Green/natural burial nurtures the growth cycles of Eternal Meadow, fosters a greater union with nature, and is a meaningful way to honor the life of a loved one.
