099 – Die Like Your Life Depended on it

July 31, 2022

Hate to break it to you, but we are all going to die.  Yet the way we dispose of those final remains has become more and more unsustainable.

Cemeteries are full or filling up, cremation fills the skies with toxins and greenhouse gases, hundreds of thousands of cancer-causing fluids are pumped into dead bodies to make them look a bit more lifelike. 

So alternatives are increasingly the norm - from reusing graves to dissolving bodies in lye to paper coffins to home burials.
