The economy is taking a toll on the dead as bodies stack up in morgues across the country. Many are going unclaimed by families who can't afford to bury or cremate their loved ones. One way we look back at a culture is how they dispose of their dead.
Considering an eco-afterlife? A "Green Burial" will return your remains to the earth naturally and avoids embalming, toxic chemicals, metal caskets and burial vaults. Eco-friendly burial at sea is another option for those dying to go green.
