We wanted to highlight some important facts about the Infinity Burial Suit and green burial that you might want to know. Here are the Top 5!
1. The Science Behind the Suit
All of our products contain a mixture of mushrooms and other biological material that provide three benefits: help the body return to the earth, clean toxins in the body and soil, and deliver nutrients to plants. Check out our FAQ page / The Science Behind the Suit to learn more!
2. Body Toxicity
We hate to be the bearers of bad news – but our bodies are storehouses of environmental toxins. According to the the Centers for Disease Control in the US, we have potentially 219+ toxic chemicals in our body – these include tobacco residues, dry cleaning chemicals, pesticides, fungicides, flame retardants, heavy metals, preservatives, ect. Here’s the full report.
The Infinity Burial Suit works to remediate and neutralize these toxins, allowing for a green burial with small footprint.
The Infinity Burial Suit is completely legal to use!
Burial laws vary state to state, so it is important to be informed about what is required in your area. If you would like to learn more about the specific laws of your state, check out our list of laws.
Also – since we are on the topic of laws and burial, it’s important to mention that embalming is RARELY required by law. If you want to learn more about embalming, visit the Funeral Consumers Alliance.
4. Burial Location
For burial in an Infinity Burial Suit, a range of options are open to you, including traditional cemeteries, specially designated green cemeteries, green burial conservation lands, or even on private land. Each provider is different though, so we recommend contacting them to discuss your wishes and make arrangements.
We find that green cemeteries, hybrid cemeteries and conservation lands are the easiest to work with and most aligned with our customers’ values. If you are interested in seeing where these types of cemeteries are, check out our cemetery map.
