What exactly is a green cemetery? When opting for a green burial one is forgoing a vault, embalming, concrete, and metal. Not only does it tread more lightly on the earth, it is easier on the pocket book as well. The right to a burial at The Natural Path Sanctuary appears to be about $3500. In contrast, an average funeral in 2006 cost $7,300. And I'm certain the price has increased since.
