Being Green and preserving our planet has become a way of life for many people. The environmentally-conscious green lifestyle may be one of the most beneficial movements in the world today, and it is easily carried through a final farewell. Meeting desires of families is an ongoing, ever-changing challenge of funeral professionals. It is time to serve the many people who want to preserve the environment through the growing practice of green funerals and burials. For this reason, Passages International developed and sponsors a program called a Greener Funeral (AGF).

A Greener Funeral, and its companion web site, aGreenerFuneral.org, were created to help consumers learn more about the subject of Green and plan a greener funeral. Simultaneously, the program helps funeral professionals better serve their community.

?At aGreenerFuneral.org we believe that Green is in the eye of the beholder,? says Passages? President, Darren Crouch. ?Our goal is to make aGreenerFuneral.org the top resource for consumers interested in greener funerals. While ?green? is a growing trend with families all over, the funeral home that is proactive in offering greener funerals and products will attract a broader range of consumers while reinforcing its commitment to personalized service and innovation.?

Passages invites funeral professionals to join its AGF Partner Provider program by providing green products and services to families. ?Becoming an AGF Provider simply signifies that you are willing and ready to help families with green funeral alternatives by carrying Passages International products, which are the finest and most earth-friendly available,? says Crouch. ?It?s not just about knowing where to go for information, it?s about making these options readily available to families.?

Participants will receive the AGF Greenleaf emblem to display on site, in advertising and at relevant community events. This emblem complements other green funeral certifications and organizational programs. There are no fees or renewable requirements associated with becoming a Partner Provider.

Passages International, Inc. is the largest supplier of green and eco-friendly funeral products.
