Going Green To The Grave Isn't Easy In The Queen City
CHARLOTTE, N.C.--From the way they prepare the body. To the casket. Everything, including the urn, can be environmentally friendly. Green funerals are one growing segment of a 12-billion-dollar industry. Some of the green options were on display this week at the Charlotte Convention Center as part of the National Funeral Director's Association. "I think a lot of people don't want the funeral their parents had. They want something unique," said Darren Crouch of Passages International.
While green options might be available, some funeral directors say ending your life in an environmentally friendly way isn't easy in the Queen City. "I think a lot of this is hype it became a way of marketing for some people," said Carolina Funeral & Cremation Center's Steven Kuzma.
