I do not know why there are not any green burial sites in NWA.

This was an excellent article and I am looking forward to reading the series. As a social worker I've had many clients who were still paying for the funeral of an adult child or spouse then facing death themselves, knowing they did not have funds to pay for their own funeral. Many who are 'old-old' cannot accept any funeral plan other than a formal service and burial, cremation is just not an option. We need much, much more education on this topic. Thank you.
