GREENING OF THE AMERICAN FUNERAL

October 1 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Free

Nothing is as kind to the planet as a formaldehyde-free burial, whether it involves a shrouded body on a burial board or a body inside a biodegradable casket without any metal hardware or nails.

Join Green-Wood’s death educator and eco-friendly funeral director Amy Cunningham in a discussion about greener funeral options, as well as modern modes of accelerating the body’s return to the soil. You can become a tree, after all!Free. Reservations are recommended. If the event is not sold out, walk-ups will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis. To make an online reservation or to find out more information, visit www.green-wood.com/toursevents or call 718-210-3080.
