Eternally green: Woodland burials are a natural alternative to an embalmed afterlife

I just thought I would add a link to this article in the PG as it caught my eye this morning. For the longest time I have envisioned an afterlife for me that consisted of a quick trip to a crematorium then being sprinkled over New Zealand. While not ruling out that option, I think this is a much better way to look at signing off for good. After seeing way too many movies that depict embalming (“Revenge of the Living Dead” quickly comes to mind), I am pretty sure I don’t want to go through that, even if I am dead at the time.

Not exactly being interred in a shoebox in the backyard of 3710 McWhinney Street with Mya and half a dozen other animals or ending up as soylent green, but somewhere in the middle I suppose and closer to how I would prefer to romanticize my physical remains being disposed of when the time comes.
