The Final Footprint - Green Burial March 31, 2019

Here is one unexpected way to benefit those you leave behind: 

Transition Mar Vista and Bridging Transitions present: 

Greening Your Death: Your Final Footprint.

Dedicated to sustainable living, the green movement has been slow to address how our deaths impact the environment and that impact is larger than you think. 

In the US we bury 20 million board feet of wood for caskets, 1.6 million tons of concrete and 4.3 million gallons of embalming fluids containing Formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, every year! And cremation, often thought of as a green alternative to burial, has a significant carbon footprint. 

There is a better way to go!

Join us this Sunday, March 31, at the Green Tent to learn all about Green Burial, at Sea burial, and other more earth friendly options.  You may also want to explore the Green Burial Council website.
Drop by for a chat, lots of information, resources, and play a communal game aimed at creating awareness. 

Honoring the human life cycle and honoring the earth can go hand in hand, so let's green our final footprint.
