Richmond, IN — Starmark, a leading provider of innovative funeral products, is pleased to announce that its Nature’s Way® Natural and Terra green burial and cremation containers have been certified by the Green Burial Council. Starmark continues its initiative to provide Sensible Solutions® for a growing number of funeral and cemetery professionals who share a commitment to creating more sustainable after-death options for families, their communities, and the planet.
The Green Burial Council (www.greenburialcouncil.org) is a nationally recognized, non-profit organization working to encourage sustainability in the funeral service profession. The council offers certification programs for burial grounds, funeral homes, and funeral products. Certification is awarded to funeral providers that demonstrate compliance with the established Green Burial Council standards designed to create sustainable practices in the funeral industry and to preserve and steward land through burial.
“We are pleased to announce Green Burial Council certification for our Nature’s Way Natural and Terra green burial and cremation containers,” remarked Justin Davis, Starmark’s Director of Marketing and R&D. “Our team at Starmark is focused on providing innovative solutions for funeral professionals. There is a growing consumer demand for environmentally friendly funeral services such as green burial and green cremation including biodegradable urns. Starmark will continue to introduce additional products that will enhance funeral service while further reducing its impact on the environment.”
The Starmark Nature’s Way series, originally introduced in 2009, provides funeral homes and their families with environmentally friendly burial and cremation container choices that are very affordable and generate an increase in body present events. These containers offer high eye appeal, are environmentally responsible, and are strong, yet lightweight. For funeral professionals, these products bring about new opportunities for green burial and cremation services, simple and private family farewells as well as identification viewings which research proves are preferred by informed consumers instead of “no view” final dispositions.
