I envision a world where an anti-ecological burial would be a thing of a past. This would allow our bodies to return to nature in a sense through microbes. This would prevent our bodies from remaining in a limbo of chemicals and sealed away. Through traditional anti-ecological burials we are just preventing the inevitable. If we want a better way to remember our loved ones we would move our society in the direction of ecological burials where our bodies and the money associated with funeral costs would go towards conservation.
If we are to make ecological burials more of a norm it would allow for a more sustainable future. I am hoping that we push our governments to end the privatization of funerals and death to push for more ecological means. At the very least we need to begin the conversation of removing taboos around death.
