Cremation was considered to be an environmentally better option than burial but now green burials are offered, would you consider one of those or do you still think cremation is best?

I have heard of shrouds that come embededded with seeds that you can use instead of a coffin. I quite like the idea of that.
I used to be all in favour of cremation but recently have been investigating other options as I believe that it may no longer be the best in terms of environmental impact. A green burial is definitely an attractive idea I think.
I like the idea of a green burial. Though I've always had an irrational fear of being buried alive, I think it's important we consider our options early on and discuss them with our families just in case. I told my husband, I'd like to be buried and him to plant a rosebush on my grave.

And then there's the issue of being buried close to loved ones. That would be nice as well.

I like green burials, but I think I want to be cremated.
absolutely would consider a 'green burial'. Cremation is not environmental friendly, and gives nothing back to the earth.
