2006 roundup #34: How to die green


Your last environmental choice involves what happens to you after you're gone.  Do you get pumped full of chemicals that'll leach into the groundwater, and shoved into a really expensive (between £500 and £5000 typically) box that'll get crushed underground after only a couple of days' usage?  Or do you return to the earth from whence you sprang, with options like the Acorn Urn (compressed newspaper, tasteful, and at £45, hardly a burden on your heirs) or the Woodland Burial, where you gently decompose into robin food (via the worm)?  [GT]
