Passages International Inc. Introduces New Catalog, Product

Passages Gourd Urn

Passages International's new Gourd Urn.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Passages International Inc. has released its new 2018 catalog. The catalog was designed to be used as a tool for funeral homes to present eco-friendly and alternative urns and caskets to their nontraditional customers.

The organization of the catalog follows the product decision-making process that a family would go through when arranging a funeral. Beginning, for example, with the selection of a casket for cremation, followed by a presentation of urns organized by usage, and then to memorial pieces and jewelry. The catalog does not include pricing or funeral industry jargon.

“The catalog has been designed to walk families through the product selection process and is geared toward cremation consumers,” said Darren Crouch, president of Passages InternationalInc. “We have found that our eco-friendly woven caskets are often used for cremation. Families gravitate to the alternative nature of our products and feel that they align closely with their values.”

Passages has also announced a new product, the Gourd Urn. Each Gourd Urn is a unique, all-natural product grown and handcrafted the Southwest USA by local artists. They include an engravable cast bronze memorial pendant that hangs from the driftwood top by a leather cord, and are offered in a variety of sizes.

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.
