Green Goodbye: Earth-Friendly Burials

Green Goodbye: Earth-Friendly Burials

In preparation for the show this week, we did a poll on Facebook:

Have you considered an earth-friendly, green burial for yourself or a family member?
__ Definitely. Already have plans in place
__ Don’t know enough about it, but want to learn more
__ Don’t think so

Surprisingly, the first two were tied and only two people opted for ‘Don’t think so’. Take the poll and leave a message, we’d love to hear from you!

Believe it or not, this show was anything but gloomy! From our report from Green Diva Sandy in New York about her review of the NY Wild Film Festival to our lively interview with the fascinating Elizabeth Fournier, funeral director of Cornerstone Funeral Services in Boring, Oregon and author of All Men are Cremated Equal: My 77 Blind Dates.

And lots of tidbits of information in between . . .
