cemetary-morguefile.jpgA West Virginia county board of supervisors has approved the development of an ecologically friendly cemetery.

A special-use permit approved this week allows for a funeral home to establish the 8-acre Duck Run Natural Cemetery on a former dairy farm in Penn Laird.

Bodies will be buried without embalming fluid, concrete vaults or gravestones. Bodies could be placed in a biodegradable casket but people may choose to be wrapped and buried without one.
