    Islamic burial uses no coffin and no cremation. The body is wrapped in a plain, white cloth and placed into the ground. And only a simple headstone or marker, no monuments/mausoleums allowed.

    Best idea yet for me came from a young man in Barcelona. Place the ashes of a loved one in a compostable urn with the seeds of a favorite tree. Bury it. Watch it grow. That's what I'm doing.

    In Berlin, a plain pine box, no embalming, 17 years later dust to dust and the cemetery plot becomes free.

    Unless you are lucky enough to own a bit of land (a field, not just a garden) it's a LOT more expensive to have a natural burial rather than being directly cremated. You have to pay for the plot, which is around £1,400, then the burial, another £1k or so. I hope they come up with a more environmentally friendly option which doesn't exclude those on a limited budget (this is in the UK, dunno about other places). There are advice pages for those that want to bypass the funeral director route, as they charge a lot for many things you can do yourself with a bit of research.

    I have always thought we should have alternative materials for coffins. Especially cremations where you have just purchased an expensive coffin only to for it to be burned to a cinder. If I am wrong regarding cremation somebody please let me know.

    instead of manufacturing degradable coffins which needs more electricity/energy and materials. Why don't you follow the Islamic way to treat the dead ones, cover the body and burry in the ground, so the worm and other microorganisms can take the benefits. it's more simple

    Wait, why should coffin matters? I mean, can't you just bury the body without using chemicals from ake-ups and coffins? You don't even need tombstones. It saves money, time, and the environment. Well, I respect others' traditions.
