Think green in your will, so that you leave the smallest imprint when you pass away. In terms of space and cost, cremation seems to be the best options. There are now coffins made from recycled content, and reefs that are created from your remains, and sunk into the ocean. Eco-burials don't involve embalming, which uses chemicals like formaldehyde (that are absorbed by the soil and stick around for years), metal caskets, or concrete burial vaults.
