Camille Adair

Camille is joined by Joe Sehee, Founder & Executive Director of the “Green Burial Council,” a nonprofit organization intended to encourage sustainability in the death care industry and to use the burial process as a means of facilitating ecological restoration and landscape level conservation.

The organization recently established the nation’s first certifiable standards for cemeteries, funeral providers, and cremations facilities. Joe also works as a consultant bringing together land trusts, park service agencies, open space districts, and disposition companies for the purpose of permanently protecting endangered landscapes throughout the US.

A Peabody Award-winning journalist, Joe previously worked as an affordable housing advocate for the Bay Area Council/Association of Bay Area Governments, and as a Jesuit lay minister at the University  of San Francisco where he directed the campus peace and social justice program.

  1. We at Eternal Reefs have had the opportunity to work with Joe Sehee and the Green Burial Council to develop standards for memorail reefs. The entire GBC organization is an excellent group to work with. The passion they bring to both the memorialization and land conservation worlds is having an important impact on the concepts of funerals and memorialization.Thanks for hosting Joe and the GBC.
