Our natural burial Full Body Burial at Sea is a way of caring for the dead with minimal environmental impact that aids in the conservation of natural resources.

Our Full Body Burial at Sea necessitates the use of non-toxic and biodegradable materials.

Traditional Burials are becoming very expensive and use a large footprint of our environment to bury a loved one.

Metal caskets, concrete vaults, and embalmed bodies are not conducive to the earth’s environment.

There are alternative methods to bury your loved one without the expense and potential damage to the environment.

The environmental impact of death is a growing concern for funeral consumers, and rightly so.

Traditional burial in the U.S. has come to encompass a wide variety of obstructive, unnecessary, invasive, and expensive services and products, such as embalming, tombstones, lacquered caskets, and heavily manicured grave sites.

Society is approaching a paradigm shift in dealing with human body disposal.

A burial is considered natural when the body receives no embalming treatment and is buried in a biodegradable container/shroud.

All vessels used by Argos at Sea are USCG certified for safety.
