Wrap me in a sheet and put me in a hole

Of course, this is not the only green burial option. Some would want an "air burial" where, as I understand it, the body is placed atop a structure high enough that ground dwellers, like coyotes and wolves, can't reach the body, leaving the remains "available" to air borne scavengers.

Others want their remains sent to the "Body Farm" in TN where corpses are observed as they disappear to help forensic scientists learn how this process works. Some want their remains scattered to the winds either as ask, or like my wife, want to be placed in the hands of search and rescue teams for use in training cadaver dogs.

None of this means that you shouldn't do your burial as you wish. You should. But, alternatives to "mainstream burial" are out there, and you can read about an alternative approach right here.
