When a person dies and chooses the complete form of green burial, the body must be wrapped or placed ina biodegradable material. Joseph Lane, president and chief operating officer of Lane Funeral Homes, shows a shroud made of sea grass that could be used in green burials. Green burial "is something different and not for everyone, but it's something we can't ignore," Lane said. At the Lane Funeral Home in Canfield, an entire display is dedicated to green burial products, including wooden and wicker coffins.
