JOURNAL 223 - Magazine Writing Blog Post #1
TOPIC: What might be your story idea? What do you hope to learn?
My story idea is green (environmentally friendly) burials. I hope to learn about the environmental impact of modern burials practices and what green alternatives are available (such as biodegradable coffins, sea burials, natural organic reduction). I think it's also interesting to learn about how Jewish burial practices have been fairly eco-friendly for centuries, if that has maybe changed over time and if people who are planning on being buried in Jewish cemeteries in Los Angeles will choose between the traditional area or the zone that is certified "green".
