It is evident that green burials have many environmental benefits. In these burials, the production of huge amounts of steel and concrete is no longer necessary. Instead, the coffins or urns used are made of more eco-friendly materials like bamboo or clay. These materials are able to decompose naturally and leave a lower carbon footprint. Green burials allow people who respect the environment in life to do the same in death. The idea of being laid to rest in a natural setting can also provide a lot of comfort.

環保葬顯然對環境有許多效益。在這些葬禮中,不再需要生產大量的鋼材和混凝土。相反的是,所使用的棺材或骨灰甕是由如竹子或泥土等更環保的材料製成的。這些材料能夠自然分解並留下較少的碳足跡。環保葬讓那些生前尊重環境的人們在死後也能如此。被安葬在自然環境中的主意可以帶給人們很大的慰藉。
