Death: The Eco-Friendly Way - Brought to you by Ideal Bite
Over your dead body they will, if you opt for an eco-burial. Toxic chems and non-eco coffins might be typical graveyard fare, but for Biters who wanna rest easier, eco-burial's the natural way to go.
- A less-toxic legacy. Eco-burials don't involve embalming, which uses chems like formaldehyde that are absorbed by the soil and stick around for years. (Plus, most eco-burials just plain take up less physical space.)
- Death becomes you. Beautiful, biodegradable caskets and shrouds made from eco-friendly materials are a great alternative to those made with processed, varnished wood from threatened tree species, such as mahogany.
- Bigger inheritances for the kids. Eco-burials can cost less than half the price of a standard burial, so your loved ones won't be buried in debt when you're gone.
Jen From Renewable Choice Says: Ever since I saw the movie The Mission and subsequently visited the site where it was filmed in Argentina, I have insisted that when my time comes my body is to be dumped over the top of Iguazu Falls. Now, this may not be the most ecologically friendly option, but it seems very natural and cyclical to me. Perhaps it would be better to be cremated and have only some of my ashes thrown over the Falls. That way I can have part of me there, part of me left in Ireland to be with my relatives, part of me left in my hometown of Chicago, part of me left in New Orleans, and of course part of me left here in my Rocky Mountains. What a morbid post - Rest In Peace... ~Jen
