    Wow, I had never heard of green burials before reading. It is definitely an interesting concept, and I appreciate the use of biodegradable materials in order to lessen the impact on the environment. It’s fascinating that green burials are only reemerging now, after being used for centuries before the advent of embalming fluids. Thanks so much for writing!

    Hello Marge, you can definitely place cremains into the ocean. Usually it is best if the remains are placed inside of a biodegradable friendly urn first, which you can find HERE. I would suggest also reading over the regulations for ocean burial as well which you can find HERE. Hopefully this helps, but let me know if you have any other questions.

    Sincerely,
    Susan Fraser
