What is Conservation & Green Burial?
Carolina Memorial Sanctuary is committed to perpetual conservation of the environment as each burial becomes part of the living landscape. The Sanctuary is a true manifestation of ashes- to-ashes and dust-to-dust. Conservation & green burial practices support and reinforce the cycle of life, offering a powerful testament to your life or that of your loved one. Beautiful and economical – conservation and green burial support those who are environmentally conscious in life with the opportunity to uphold their values in death; ensuring that future generations will have access to the same.
By embracing conservation burial standards, we are able to provide an accessible, economical and environmentally responsible alternative to contemporary cemeteries, at a cost of one half to one third of traditional burial.
