hearsesHave you ever worried about what the planet is going to be like after you die? If so, there are things you can do to contribute your little part to its sustainability.

Eco-friendly funerals and memorials are becoming quite popular in today’s funeral industry. One way directors and other funeral-related facilities are helping is by using more efficient hearses and funeral cars for their services. But that’s not all.

The number of cremations has been on the rise in the last few years. Surviving loved ones find places to spread the ashes where they will help fertilize the vegetation or they will often find places where the ashes will not harm the environment. In addition to being a great way to help the environment after your death, cremations are also much less expensive than traditional burials. In some instances, they may even be about one-tenth of the price of a traditional burial.

If cremation is not for you, however, you can still get buried without leaving an extra large carbon footprint. Many funeral homes across the country now specialize in “green” burials in which you can be buried in an open field.

Do you have any ideas to make your funeral greener? Or do you prefer the traditional burial that we have come to know today? Let us know your thoughts below.
