Green Burial

Fairchild makes available several “green” burial options and is one of a select group of funeral providers approved by the Green Burial Council; a nonprofit organization that encourages the use of burial as a means of facilitating the restoration, acquisition, and stewardship of natural areas. For such arrangements, formaldehyde-based embalming is prohibited, as is the use of metal or concrete grave-liners, burials-vaults, or other permanent burial containers. All casket or alternative containers used during a green burial are made of bio-degradable materials.
