Green Burial

What is a Green Burial?

A green burial differs from the traditional funeral burial in a cemetery by the use of the only natural materials which are bio-degradable. Caskets are made of simple woods, wicker or fiberboard. No toxic chemicals are used in preparing the body for burial. This eliminates any pollution to the environment. Headstones are replaced by the planting of remembrance trees or simple slate stones. This entire concept maintains living memorial woodland.

The service can follow traditional customs by the use of a priest, rabbi or minister. All faiths and religions are welcomed and family members and friends may attend the burial at the graveside. Traditional religious services may take place at a church or synagogue prior to attending the burial.

Where is the cemetery?

Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is on North Broadway (Route 9) in the Village of Sleepy Hollow, NY. The Riverview Natural Burial Grounds within the cemetery overlooks the waters of the Pocantico River, which meander gently just a few steps away. These untouched grounds provide a varied natural terrain. The Riverview Natural Burial Grounds is the perfect choice for those who seek an environmentally responsible option for the burial of a loved one, or for themselves.

What is the concept?

Riverview Natural Burial Grounds is a sustainable space. No inorganic fertilizers or pesticides are used on this land. There is no embalming. Only untreated biodegradable, natural materials may be used in the construction of the casket or shroud. Even cremation urns must be fabricated of organic materials such as corn starch, salt, or untreated woods.

We are Certified by the Green Burial Council

Certification by the Green Burial Council allows consumers to rest assured that the green or natural burial services that they are receiving have been thoroughly vetted against stringent and up-to-date standards – created and continuously reviewed by a team of environmentalists, scientists, lawyers, and representatives from the funeral industry.
