Writing and reading crime fiction we talk and read so much about death and the dead body, but it generally ends with the death itself and we don’t go into what happens after.
In reality, our choices are, we think, burial or cremation, or as I’ve pointed out in a previous post, a few other more outlandish options like space burial. But what about a more sensible and not outlandish idea? What about an environmentally friendly idea?
I came across this TED talk and it appealed to me. It talks about how each cremation is like a 500-mile car trip in relation to its environmental impact. And, it talks about the vanity of burial. I like this below option, though I’m not sure it’s a thing in the UK. The speaker doesn’t seem to know if it’s strictly legal in the US. But more consideration should be given to it. I like the common sense of it. What do you think?
