With the ever increasing awareness of environmental issues, more and more people these days are opting for 'green' or 'environmentally friendly' funerals. Individuals can take this as far as they wish, with some opting for a traditional funeral but with a coffin made from materials which have the least amount of impact on the environment, some people electing to plant a tree in their loved one's memory to those who opt for a totally 'green' burial.
A green burial is all about keeping things as simple, natural and beautiful as possible, returning to nature in a way that will not harm the environment, but will actually preserve the landscape and enhance opportunities for wildlife. There are currently around 200 natural burial sites across the UK ranging from those with wide open vistas to woodland glades.
Tovey Bros has an established relationship with Native Woodland Limited, who have Natural Burial sites near Usk and Cardiff both with views across stunning countryside, and will be pleased to advise on all aspects of green funerals.
