Stephanie, Thanks for this link to a very important issue. I strongly recommend that everyone follow the link to the article and read it.

Whereas the "going green" phrase is so simplistic (but better than "carbon footprint" I'll admit) as to be mind numbing, I see nothing wrong with a natural burial in a shroud only. Natural decomposition would be far better than all of the preserving fluids and materials making up a "leak proof" coffin.

Thanks for calling this ordinance and debate to our attention; I hope that all of the members of the Association of Graveyard Rabbits will read your article.

Terry
