North Americans spend tens of billions of dollars on funerals every year. With the baby boomers aging, these dollars will significantly increase with what Dr. Billy Campbell refers to as the “death boom.” In this video watch Dr. Campbell appeal to us to reevaluate how we spend our funeral money. Campbell explains that in the next 25 years, less than 10% of the money we’re spending on funerals, could be better used to protect the earth and future generations, by restoring over a million acres of natural land. This can be done by using conservation burial grounds that bring our bodies back to nature.
