- What does the Green Burial Council seal represent?
To be able to use the official seal from the Green Burial Council our product must meet high standards that are meant to protect the public from false claims. Our fabric supplier and the manufacturing facility had to demonstrate that the fabric was truly natural and organic. The Green Burial Councils rating system is comprised of one, two or three leafs, based upon meeting specific criteria.
The ForloraShroud is currently the only burial shroud that has received the highest rating of "three leafs." from the Green Burial Council
- What if we need the burial shroud right away?
In many cases the burial shroud can be shipped same day air. Expedited delivery is quite expensive, so we encourage pre-planning. The order for same day air must arrive by 9:00am central time and you must call to confirm your order. Although we attempt to fill are orders and most carriers are reliable, we cannot guarantee shipment due to unforeseen circumstances, inclement weather, etc. Next day air is available through FedEx if the burial shroud must arrive on Saturday. UPS does not deliver on weekends. Please call to place your order if you need weekend delivery or next day air.
