Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.
By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.
What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.
A few weeks ago I wrote a post about green burials. These are also referred to as human composting or natural organic reduction. The green burial process involves placing the deceased in an 8ft-long steel box with biodegradable materials such as wood chips and flowers. After 30 to 60 days, the body breaks down into soil that can be returned to relatives.
Green burials are a more environmentally friendly alternative to conventional underground burials and cremations. California recently joined Colorado, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington to legalize the practice.
Given this, my question this week is…
How do you intend to dispose of your physical body after you die? Would you consider a green burial if it were legal where you live?
