GREEN IS FOR FUNERALS TOO
The environmentally-conscious “green” lifestyle may be one of the most beneficial movements in the world today, yet most people only associate green with living. For people who want to preserve the environment, the growing practice of green funerals and burials presents a way to make the end of life more meaningful too.
More than half of Americans now say that they are concerned about the environment. 21% of Americans over the age of 50 would prefer an eco-friendly, end-of-life ritual, according to a 2007 AARP national research report. For these people, green represents an ethical and philosophical choice.
What is a green funeral ?
Webster’s online dictionary defines the word “green” (as it pertains to products and services) as “not harmful to the environment.” A green funeral is generally any end-of-life ritual that is as harmless as possible for the environment. This can include burial in a green or “natural” cemetery.
