What To Do With the Body: An Environmental Perspective

This talk presented by Deborah Meckler will address both conventional and imaginative ways of dealing with human remains in a massively populated world, with an eye to how these death care activities affect Earth’s ecosystems and resources. She will discuss the evolving death-care choices and necessities world-wide as well as recent changes in the options available in the U.S., including green burial, alkaline hydrolysis, and composting. Also included will be a glimpse of the ongoing research and experimentation for new ways to minimize the impact of human remains disposition. Who knew there were so many ways to go?

Deborah Meckler has a BA in History and a BS in Natural Resources Management and Conservation. She has been an environmental consultant and has worked to expand the availability of green burial in the Bay Area.

We will be in room 619 on the 6th floor. Please enter the building from the 835 Market St. entrance between Walgreens and the Timberland store.
