Going Out Green by Bob Butz
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


As an award-winning author and amateur naturalist, Butz is a man who's spent most of his career writing about the soul-stirring goodness of a life lived close to the land. Yet, when it comes to 'living green', this pickup driving, diaper-changing, stay-at-home father of two admits he's like most Americans - hardly a candidate for Environmentalist of the Year. Thankfully, these qualities make him the perfect down-to-earth guide through the natural burial process. From a vivid observation of conventional embalming to a helping hand in digging a grave in one on the scores of 'natural burial preserves' popping up all across America, Butz offers a witty and detailed account of his adventure into the current trend of green burials. As Butz weighs in on the emotional and biodegradable benefits of being buried in a blanket, shroud, or hand-made coffin crafted from locally grown timber, "Going Out Green" will also instruct the reader how they might one day return naturally to the earth.
