The fourth episode of A Good Goodbye TV, now available on The Family Plot Channel on YouTube, focuses on green burial and eco-friendly funerals. Darren Crouch, president of Passages International and a director of the Green Burial Council’s education program, is the guest expert interviewed on this program. Passages International is a leading provider of environmentally-friendly and green funeral products.
While most people associate green only with living, green funerals and green burials provide a way to make end-of-life rituals more meaningful. The discussion includes cremation scattering, resource use related to traditional funerals and ways to reduce environmental impact with our cremations or funeral arrangements.
There’s more information about green burial and eco-friendly funerals available online at www.AGreenerFuneral.org. You can also read more at The Family Plot Blog about home funerals.
The interview is found on the four-DVD set of A Good Goodbye TV series, on DVD 2, Trending Topics: Green Funerals, Life Celebrations and Pet Loss.
A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die presents an educational and entertaining 12-episode series of 25-minute programs. This award-winning show features expert interviews on “everything you need to know before you go.”
Host Gail Rubin, CT, brings a light touch to a serious subject. Like her award-winning book of the same name, the TV interviews cover information most folks don’t know about until faced with a death in the family. By planning ahead and having a conversation families can reduce stress at a time of grief, minimize family conflict, save money, and create a meaningful, memorable good goodbye.
Each episode provides valuable insights into funeral planning issues. From pre-need planning to grief counseling, financial issues to the latest trends in death care, these interviews offer eye-opening insights into the party no one wants to plan.
