Beyond Green Burial – An ecological option for after death

Tuesday, December 5, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Members & guests – free.

This program will be presented live via Zoom. To join, scroll down and RSVP. All registered attendees will receive an email with the link to join the day before the event.

Laura Cassidy works for RECOMPOSE, the Seattle-based organization where sustainable after death practices originated. Now legal in seven states, with legislation pending in Illinois (HB3158), human composting offers a way to nourish the land with remains without requiring long term space use as does a grave. Laura will describe how human composting works and why it is such a benefit for the earth and humanity.

This hour-long presentation will include visuals, a short video from King 5 News, and time for Q and A.
