Topic: Green Burials & Other Earth-Friendly Dispositions

The term 'Green burials' has been around for decades now. But what does it mean? What requirements have to be met for a burial to be considered 'green'? What is a 'clean cremation'? Come learn about some of the new Earth friendly options for disposition: Alkaline hydrolysis, mushroom suits, and tree pods...oh my! The presentation will be followed with a time for discussion. There will also be a biodegradable casket & urns, as well as other green funeral products to look at.

Advance registration is appreciated. Walk-ins welcome.
