RE: [greenyes] burial methods
I love this idea.  I believe that, when all is said and done, humans contribute two things to mother earth: humanure, and their bodies after they die.  
 
It has long disturbed me to think that the choices for my corpse were limited to a) buried in a sea of chemicals or b) turned into smoke and ash.  How lovely to think that I might fertilize some new life here on earth after I am gone!
