(BPT) - As Americans become increasingly dedicated to reducing their carbon footprint, people are exploring ways to be green in life, as well as after death. Last year, the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) reported in its Consumer Preferences and Awareness Study that more than 50 percent of Americans are interested in exploring green funeral options.

When it comes to taking green to the grave, funeral directors are memorialization experts and can help loved ones find natural funeral and burial options to fit any budget and preference, whether it be placing cremated remains in a biodegradable urn or burying a loved one in a wicker casket in a natural cemetery. The sky is the limit when it comes to being environmentally friendly, but here are 10 popular green burial options.
