    When my uncle died recently the funeral home offered the option of having a tree planted in his memory instead of putting dead flowers on his casket.

    Also, you should think about what type of funeral you want and to what degree one’s funeral can be “green.” Discuss it with your family and leave clear instructions. This is obviously subject to people’s personal convictions, but I personally would prefer to be an organ donor, worm food, or human compost, to an old style ‘traditional’ funeral.

    My final instructions say that I am to be cremated and the ashes sprinkled at the summit of one of the local mountains. I see no benefit of having a box take up real estate for generations to come.
