First-Ever Green Funeral Conference Scheduled for October
WHEELING, IL — As a death care professional, you know it is essential to be prepared to meet family needs and provide expert guidance. Consumers want their funerals to reflect their lives, and that often includes incorporating green values. Though there are widely varying definitions of “green,” the requests for green funerals, or even just greener options, will continue to increase. Over 200 U.S. cemeteries—nearly every state has at least one—offer some type of green burial option. Whether in natural burial grounds, conservation preserves, or hybrid cemeteries, it is becoming easier for those who want a green burial to have one.
Not sure how to serve families who want a greener option? Or do you already offer these options but want to network and gain ideas for promoting them within your community? Join Passages International and the Cremation Association of North America October 2-4, 2019 in Albuquerque, NM as we come together to explore the shades of green when it comes to funeral practices. Then plan to stay through the weekend for the International Balloon Fiesta! Additional details, including the full program and registration information, will be available soon on the CANA website.
Founded in 1913, the Cremation Association of North America (CANA) is an international organization of over 3,300 members, composed of funeral homes, cemeteries, crematories, industry suppliers, and consultants. CANA members believe that cremation is preparation for memorialization.
