Darren Crouch Elected to board of the Green Burial Council

In December 2018, Darren Crouch, founder and president of Passages International, Inc. was elected to the board of the Green Burial Council (GBC). The GBC is the environmental certification organization setting the standard for green burial practices in North America, offering environmental certificates for funeral homes, cemeteries, and product manufacturers. This new development will help secure the industry overall in being prepared to support the ever-rising demand for green and eco-friendly burial and cremation options.

“The GBC has been a recognized voice for the green and natural burial movement for over a decade” says Crouch. “I am honored to join the board and bring my 20+ years in the funeral industry to help educate funeral homes on the benefits of offering greener options to families. Being part of the leadership will allow me to contribute to the future of this important organization and keep it on a steady footing. It is critical that the GBC has a consistent message and a stable, competent team that can lead the movement as it continues to gain momentum.”

Passages International, Inc. has been leading the green sector of the funeral industry since 1999, with the largest selection of innovative, environmentally-friendly urns, caskets, and memorial products.
