Going Out Green: Sustainable and Meaningful Funeral Options

You’ve recycled everything from cans to glass to cardboard. You’ve saved for that once-in-a- lifetime vacation, for the kids’ college education, for retirement. Why would you want your family to spend over $10K on a funeral that uses toxic chemicals, rainforest woods, concrete or plastic?

Find out how you can continue to care for the planet and save money by planning a home funeral and learning about the green burial movement. Come learn how you can make plans that will help your family and friends know exactly what you want, and enrich the experience for all.

You’ll find out what Generation Thumb to Baby Boomers and their parents across the country are thinking about and planning for their last hurrah, what your legal rights and responsibilities are, and how to do it without breaking the bank.

Presented by Lee Webster, director of NH Funeral Resources Education & Advocacy.  Lee is a writer, editor, public speaker, conservationist, hospice volunteer, and gardener.  She has trained as a home funeral guide with Final Passages and Crossings: caring for our own at death, and works with Crossings Care Circle and other home funeral advocates and educators in the US and Canada as the current Vice President of the National Home Funeral Alliance.

Free and open to all.  Donations will be happily accepted!

This is the second in our two-part "Dying Green" series cosponsored by The Seacoast Permaculture Group, The Durham Unitarian Universalist Fellowship & The Durham Community Church, UCC.

    Very informative. I had no idea how bad for the environment traditional funerals are.

    Lee was great! What an interesting and exciting movement to be part of... let's keep talking and see if we can make some changes in these practices in our area!
