330— Spatial Trends Of Green Burial Grounds, U.S., Emma Ranney 2021 SUNY Geneseo

330— Spatial Trends Of Green Burial Grounds, U.S., Emma Ranney

GREAT Day

"Green" burial was the standard form of interment in the United States prior to the late 1800s. During the Civil War, the rate of chemical embalming grew out of necessity, as the deceased often had to be transported considerable distances to arrive in their home state. Chemical embalming quickly became one of the most common and accepted funeral practices in the nation. In 1993, however, the natural burial movement began in the U.K., and by 1998, the U.S. had its first green-burial-friendly cemetery. The purpose of this project is to analyze spatial, temporal, and additional significant trends regarding ...
