The Good Earth is now working to implement the "One Wash Cloth" concept. At the time of death a hand knitted washcloth can be given to the family to use in the bathing of the deceased. It may be as simple as only washing the face or hands, but many believe that this ritual can bring great peace to the family and help with the grieving process. Please visit: onewashcloth.org.
