Funeral expenses in the United States average more than $10,000. And every year conventional funerals bury millions of tons of wood, concrete, and metals, as well as millions of gallons of carcinogenic embalming fluid. Elizabeth Fournier, author of the new book The Green Burial Guidebook, joined us to talk about a better way! Elizabeth says her book provides comprehensive and compassionate guidance, covering everything from green burial planning and home funeral basics to legal guidelines and outside-the-box options, such as burials at sea. She points the way to green burial practices that consider both the environmental well-being of the planet and the economic well-being of loved ones.
