Green Burial

Hoyt offers several Green Burial options and is one of a select group of funeral providers approved by the Green Burial Council; a non-profit corporation that encourages the use of burial as a means of facilitating the restoration, acquisition, and stewardship of natural areas. For more information on Green Burial, visit the Green Burial Council website or contact us. We are here to help.  

For a green burial, only bio-degradable materials are used in the preparation of the body as well as the casket, coffin, or alternative container used to enclose and transport your loved. If you choose this option, you can still have a home wake, public visitation, church funeral, and graveside services if you wish. You just need to arrange for these services within the time frame green burial allows.
