Go Green in the Hereafter

If you want to be as eco-friendly as possible and you want to plan ahead, consider a green burial optionGrave-3. Some cemeteries now offer green options and do not use embalmment, entomb- ment or non-biodegradable materials. Consider a minimal casket or cloth shroud. Or cremated remains can be mixed with ashes and formed into a “honeycombed igloo” which becomes a sea-creature habitat when sunk onto an established reef. As Billy Campbell, MD of  Ramsey Creek natural cemetary says, “We work to reincorporate the dead into the trees and flowers, catching them up in the cycles of life and death, decomposition and rebirth, that sustain us all.”
