The Green Burial Council is an independent, tax-exempt, nonprofit organization working to encourage environmentally sustainable death care and the use of burial as a new means of protecting natural areas. They use a mix of evangelism, economic incentives, and solid science. The GBC has been stewarded by individuals representing the environmental/conservation community, consumer organizations, academia, the deathcare industry, and such organizations and institutions as The Nature Conservancy, The Trust for Public Land, AARP, and the University of Colorado. They are funded by contributions from individuals, certification fees, honoraria, and a grant from the Roy M. Hunt Foundation. They are represented by 300 (and growing) "approved providers" operating throughout North America, with offices in the US and Canada.

Helen Keller, an active member of the now century-old labor union, introduced the Industrial Workers of the World as follows: "The IWW's affirm as a fundamental principle that the creators of wealth are entitled to all they create. Thus they find themselves pitted against the whole profit-making system. They declare that there can be no compromise so long as the majority of the working class lives in want while the master class lives in luxury. They insist that there can be no peace until the workers organize as a class, take possession of the resources of the earth and the machinery of production and distribution and abolish the wage system."
