CHICAGO, Illinois – EternityGardens.com expands its technology platform to Oregon and deepens its presence in California and in New Jersey.
Four Green Burial Council-certified cemeteries have joined the EternityGardens.com platform. Historic Columbian Cemetery, located in Portland, Oregon, is a Green Burial Council Certified Hybrid Cemetery. New Jersey’s Steelmantown Cemetery is a Green Burial Council Certified Natural Burial Ground. Westwood Hills Memorial Park and Purissima Natural Burial Ground, both located in California, are also Green Burial Council Certified Burial Grounds.
As cremation rates continue to rise in the US, driven in part by environmental concerns, US consumers are searching for environmentally-sustainable ways to lay to rest cremated remains.

Our presence on EternityGardens.com allows us to expand our online marketing presence and reach more cremation families in search of green burial options.”
