Natural Funeral Practice

"If you search online for “green death,” the first results might include a “Doctor Who” television episode; a “How to Train your Dragon” wiki fandom for the franchise; a heavy metal band; articles on the perils of 19th-century arsenic-based dyes; and a vodka-based cocktail. From these results, you might conclude that “green death” as a concept hasn’t entered common parlance enough to trump these other cultural touchstones. But thankfully, searching for “green funerals” or “green burials” instead reveals the opposite: there are many alternatives to traditional burial or cremation that are increasingly available. All these death-care practices share a focus on environmentally safe, humane, and loving ways to care for human and animal bodies, so you can choose the one that fits your last wishes."

Fun Fact: A new take on cremation urns
Many funeral homes and crematories have a wide selection of urns, from the plain to the ornate. But the funny thing is, any attractive piece of pottery seems to jump in price the moment the word “urn” is affixed to it. A similar container sold for another purpose might be just as suitable, and cheaper. One woman’s family put her ashes in a favorite cookie jar—a fitting tribute to a grandma who prided herself on her baking. Think about finding a container that has meaning in a family member’s home.
