Here is a quote from the article at the above link.

“The popularity of green funerals and woodland burials grow as environmental concerns rise.

London-based funeral directors, Green Endings offer a variety of burial caskets made of natural, biodegradable materials.”

Unless you consider yourself an egyptian pharoh, need a pyramid or an above ground  burial please do not consider a green funeral or a lower cost funeral.

The low cost funeral cemetery is a green cemetery.

Green cemeteries are already mentioned on the History Channel.

CSI, Donation to Science, Organ Donor, Green Funeral, Cremation, but not Funeral Cost–TV. Modern Marvels:Corpse Tech.
This was a very informative television program. From the decomposing of bodies, to the traditional funeral business. There was even a look inside cremation ovens.

The cemetery of the future was addressed. The focus was on the San Francisco Area. The Green Cemetery and the green funeral.
Funeral Cost that can be saved in cremation and green was not addressed,
The good news is that the series Modern Marvels: Corpse Tech continues to shown on the History channel.

The shows how the dead help the living.
Organ donation, tissue donation and research.
The newest and best cremation machines were featured.
Good Stuff.

The statistics given in the show were not entirely accurate coming from 2006.
Cremation rates are up. Funeral Cost is down.
