It’s coming for all of us…

WaPo today has an article about the climate effects of different death care options.

Some of us may feel there are better uses for acreage than putting boxes in the ground that will be there for pretty much ever. Cremation has become much more common and acceptable, but has a very large environmental cost.

Human composting and natural burial are becoming more common, as you can read in the article. Currently human composting is not legal in VA – you can contact your state reps about this if it appeals to you – but we do have some natural burial grounds. At this time our closest such ground is near Harrisonburg, but there’s a local Cville option that we hope will open sometime soon, at Panorama Farms.

What are your thoughts about these options? Have you already made a plan?
