The natural choice for green funeral products

A Will For The Woods Wins Awards

Have you noticed more and more families requesting “green” funeral services in recent years? Wouldn’t you like to offer alternative services and products to your families?

In our ever-changing world and an uncertain economy, Passages wants to help funeral professionals learn more about the green burial movement. Just as traditions and styles change, so do end-of-life rituals and we are here to assist funeral homes embrace this change for a successful future. Introducing an award-winning documentary titled A Will For The Woods, just released last year with screenings around the world.

Musician, folk dancer, and psychiatrist Clark Wang prepares for his own green burial, determined that his final resting place will benefit the earth. He has discovered a movement that uses burial to conserve and restore natural areas, forgoing toxic, wasteful funeral practices engineered to preserve the body at the ecosystem’s expense. Clark, a spirited and charismatic advocate, sets out to save a tract of forest with the help of green burial pioneers and a compassionate local cemeterian.

We had the opportunity to watch this documentary at the ICCFA Convention in Las Vegas last April and can highly recommend it to anyone in the funeral trade. 93 minutes well worth watching! The film makers have done an excellent job showing to what lengths people are now going when it comes to more ecologically-sound burial practices, not only for themselves but for future generations.
