Elizabeth Fournier is the owner and operator of Cornerstone Funeral Services, located outside of Portland, Oregon. She serves on the Advisory Board for the Green Burial Council, which sets the standard for green burial in North America. She lives on a farm with her husband, daughter and many goats.
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. In The Green Burial Guidebook Elizabeth Fournier, a seventh-generation mortician and pioneering champion of home funerals and natural burials, provides thoughtful and clear how-to’s with a full range of options to consider for the whole green burial process.
