What we're about

Are you uncomfortable around creationists, astrologers, psychics, homeopaths, conspiracy theorists, cult pushers, evangelicals, multilevel marketers, mediums and channelers? Yearning to talk with someone with similar thoughts for awhile? Meetup with other local skeptics for some refreshing conversation. The truth may be out there, but maybe we don't have to be... 'out there' to find it.

Green Burials

Needs a location

Natural burial offers a gentler goodbye. The natural burial movement began in the 1990’s and has gained momentum as more people appreciate that their connection and responsibility to the earth does not need to stop at death. Buried in a biodegradable casket or shroud, the body returns carbon and other minerals to the earth. Natural burial grounds bear no resemblance to conventional cemeteries. Rather than manicured lawns with rows of tombstones, imagine a meadow or woodland, which is restored and protected in its natural ecosystem. Natural burial also offers people an alternative to environmentally harmful cremation.

Note: If you live in Ontario, find out more about contacting your MPP about this important issue before the election.
