Your Last Carbon Footprint

You recycle, you use canvas bags at the grocery store, you conserve water, you don’t put chemicals on your yard, and you drive a hybrid vehicle. Would you like to reduce the carbon footprint of your life’s final ritual as well? Tips on how to do exactly that are in a 4-minute CBS feature story on home funerals and green burials in the Philadelphia area. CBS interviewed members of Natural Undertaking, a Pennsylvania resource center for home funeral care. The 20-second discussion among the news anchors at the end of the story is priceless.

I will not concur on it. I assume warm-hearted post. Specially the title attracted me to study the intact story.

I find that when people know the choices available many choose a greener option. The problem is the industry has no motivation financially to offer these green options since it takes money out of their pocket. That is why it is up to others to spread the word.

I recently worked with a family to create a "green box". The added benefit is that it was psychologically and spiritually healthy as well. (see owensbox.blogspot.com)
