Greening Your Death and Aligning Your Values

Learn about the choices you have, to make your wishes at death reflect the values that you hold dear in your life.

  1. How you’re cared for after you die, should reflect the values that you hold dear in your life.
  2. The cultural denial of death has led many of us to exclude our deathcare choices when we consider how to apply our values of ecological stewardship and interconnectedness.
  3. There are always ways to green your death regardless of final disposition options available where you live.
  4. While there is currently a wave of new “green” disposition options, green burial in its simplest form is nothing new.

Many of us do our best to live mindfully and walk lightly on our planet. Yet, we tend to give little consideration to the environmental impact of what happens to us after we die. Partly, this is because we live in a culture fraught with death denial. Typically, when someone dies, a funeral provider is called to remove the person and arrange for either burial or cremation. Most people don’t take the time to understand the array of options within these two choices, or what alternatives are available in addition to these two choices. The good news is, many steps can be taken to green your death no matter where you live, and new options for greening your death are growing.
