Ashes to ashes and dust to dust do I need all this formaldehyde can't I just rust? Look where we have gotten with funerals, bodies desecrated by strangers bodies of loved ones ripped open to be filled with toxic chemicals. Put in a concrete vaults inside a very expensive casket that cost as much as a car. Then put in a graveyard where the grass will be mowed at a large expense indefinitely. THIS IS DEFIANTLY NOT GREEN! ... Face it when we are dead we don't need to waste resources on the dead but gift them to the living...What are your ideas on this taboo subject? Can we change this archaic system? Would you want a green burial?
