Green Burial Nova Scotia is a working group of the Ecology Action Centre to raise awareness and accessibility of green burial options in our province. Through education, advocacy and a certification program, we help Nova Scotians understand and recognize the environmental benefits of green burial.

Green burial is the act of returning a body as naturally as possible to the earth. Green burials use less energy and resources, making them lower impact than conventional burials or cremation. They are also less toxic, reduce carbon emissions, and protect worker health. Certain types of green burial can even restore or preserve habitat.  Green burial minimizes environmental impacts, conserves and restores natural ecosystems, and may reduce costs at end of life.  It offers an opportunity to carry one’s living values into death.

We are currently working in a number of areas including….
• implementation pathways for green cemeteries
• public information sessions
• research of present cemeteries
• strengthening our relationship with the Green Burial Society of Canada
