Dying to Finance Conservation of Forests and other Green ways to Die

Reef Rest?

Bloomberg gives us the latest in body disposal trends . .

The Parks and Wildlife Department in Texas plans to become the first government agency in the U.S. to let families lay cremated remains in protected forests for a fee to help the state buy more land for conservation.

Back-to-Earth burials and low- energy, low-emission cremations.
Biodegradable embalming fluid to caskets made of recycled cardboard.
Cremation furnaces up to 40 percent more energy-efficient.

You can also improve the sea by using your cremains to build the Neptune Memorial Reef near Miami. It's also a great option for your "mantle people" relatives.
