Advocacy

The Council has been working to lay a foundation of receptivity for eco-friendly death care through an extensive outreach campaign to let consumers better understand their end-of-life options. In addition to making public presentations to schools, churches, senior organizations, conservation entities, representatives of the GBC have been a source for stories about green burial in hundreds of media outlets ranging from  NPR to Oprah; all of which have helped move green burial out of the fringe and into mainstream consciousness.

In addition, representatives of the GBC have been active evangelists to the funeral service industry and conservation community by authoring articles or placing stories in professional/trade journals such as American Cemetery, American Funeral Director, ICCFA Magazine, Conservation in Practice Journal,  the Property Environment Rights Center (PERC) Report, and Exchange: The Journal of Land Conservation.
