I was just at a cemetery for my great-aunt Edith’s headstone unveiling and I looked around and saw so much land being put to a relatively unproductive purpose. (This was not one of those beautiful cemeteries where people go to take walks as if it were a park). It got me to thinking, and some of my family to talking, about what I would want when I pass on.
This article is an interesting discussion of green burials. I wonder how it compares with cremation or dumping at sea in terms of environmental sustainability. Any thoughts?
