US News and World Report on Green Burial

Fine article with data about preferences of most Americans for natural burial. But there are no local options for those of us in or near Ann Arbor. We have some work to do to establish this. If most of us want it, why are we lagging behind demand? Because we are afraid to talk about death, and therefore, we don’t plan ahead, which results in doing what our family has always done – conventional funeral and burial. Visit your local cemetery and ask them for natural burial. Chances are they will tell you that they don’t offer it because no-one is asking for it! Or they don’t really know what it is. You have to inform them.
