Consumer values and lifestyles are reflected in their attitudes – and decision-making – about products and services in the marketplace. Their approach to death and funerals is no exception, so we can expect that the popularity of green funerals will continue to increase.


Make sure you and your staff are aware of green funeral and burial practices and be prepared to offer options that serve environmentally conscious families. Join our panel of experts who have “gone green” and learn from their experiences to successfully and profitably serve this growing market.
