Groovy Green features an article and a video on a new eco-cemetery in Ithaca, NY. The current form of burial includes many toxic and precious materials. These are injected into the body, or are used in the making of the caskets and tombstones. These "new" green cemeteries are actually reverting back to traditional burial…there is nothing new about it.
It turns out that Florida has it’s own eco-cemetery. Located in the panhandle, Glendale Memorial Nature Preserve seems to focus on a do-it-yourself burial. Complete with an observation tower, the preserve looks to be a peaceful place to get in touch with nature and your thoughts.
