People are returning to traditional burial practices in order to protect our environment and to honor lives that have been lived with care for the planet. Many funeral homes are joining them in taking an environmentally conscious, long-term view and working to make natural burial a real option in every state. In England there are now 270 natural burial sites, and in the United States there are now 41 sites in 26 states. Natural burial sites are un-landscaped, woodland and meadow areas where bodies are buried among the natural vegetation. Stone markers or GPS coordinates are often used to designate the graves.


Final Footprint is working with the Funeral Consumers Alliance and environmental organizations to integrate natural burial into existing open space throughout the United States. These natural burial sites are environmentally-friendly places that offer an alternative to conventional cemeteries. These sites will also provide conservation habitat for generations to come.
