Descriptions

General Brochure (tri-fold; black ink on pale moss green):  What will you do with your pet’s body? – General information about the Green Pet-Burial Society and its projects.

Transport Brochure (tri-fold; black ink on sandstone):  Who will Help me? – An appeal to transport services, funeral directors, veterinarians to help us create systems to transport a pet’s remains home. Many take their pets on vacations, visits, work assignments, yet some pets die when away from home. Stylistically, we reference the graphic novel in depicting an often unspoken despair.

Postcard (2-sided): Bereavement and Conservation – Introducing the idea of conservation whole-family cemeteries, where keeping the remains of family members together is good for the environment, the bereaved, and society.

Cost:  $5 for 50 + $8 shipping and handling = $13

We’ve had a great month!

The Green Pet-Burial Society and its programs promoting conservation whole-family cemeteries were highlighted in the new book, Even Vegans Die, by Carol Adams, Patti Breitman, and Ginny Kisch Messina.
