"Traditional burials and cremations are the most common methods of burials, but require many resources and cause pollution to the soil and air. Greener burials are a solution to this pollution by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide emitted in burials and limiting the number of resources and land used in burials. There is a lack of education on green burials that has led people to disregard them and continue with their traditional methods of burial that appease their religion and culture. However, with education society can realize that burials can be environmentally friendly and satisfy their spiritual needs."
