There are a few reasons I don't want to be cremated, but one of them is that I don't want to be seen as part of rhe world's climate problem.

There are "natural burials" where the body isn't pumped full of preservatives nor even put in a cascet. It is a cemetery of sorts. At least one I heard of was more of a nature preserve with a portion set aside for these "natural graves".

I've seen them. Two friends buried this way. Well, not quite. One was in wicker work and the other in card casket. I quite like the idea of trees growing out of me.
