Elizabeth Fournier reading on May 19


Join us for an evening with Elizabeth Fournier on May 19. Elizabeth will be presenting on her new book, The Green Burial Guidebook: Everything You Need to Plan an Affordable, Environmentally Friendly Burial. Following the discussion will be a Q&A, as well as a book signing. Did you know that every year, conventional burials in the U.S. put 4.3 million gallons of embalming fluid (which contain carcinogenic formaldehyde) into the ground? Not only are green burials better for the earth and the environment, but they can reduce funeral costs as much as 80 percent. Seventh generation mortician Elizabeth Fournier has written the guidebook we need for navigating the planning and executing of an affordable, environmentally friendly burial. People magazine recently said that Elizabeth is “…doing her part to change the way Americans bury their dead” and similar to how Caitlin Doughty of “Ask a Mortician” fame helped break open the secrets of the funeral industry, Elizabeth Fournier takes things one step further, empowering everyone to make more environmentally friendly and cost-effective choices in burial and cremation.
