What do farmers and funeral directors have in common? Well, in Australia, page they’re coming together to provide green burials. Green burials involve the use of biodegradable coffins or shrouds. Bodies are not treated with preserving chemicals or embalming fluids. “This project is about more than burials. This is the hub of something that’s deeply useful for the environment, the sustainability, and at a community level this will create jobs,” said Kevin Hartley, funeral director.
