My husband and I have difference of opinions when it comes to our bodies after death. I want to be cremated and scattered wherever. It doesn't matter - throw me in the trash if you want. He wants to be buried with a coffin, tombstone and the whole 9 yards. We did not discuss this prior to marriage.
Anyways, I think it's a waste of space and money to bury someone traditionally. This idea is cool though - they take your ashes and make you into a compostable urn that grows a tree! How freaking cool is that! No creepy cemetery for my family to visit. No obligated flowers or decorations on a tombstone. Just plant me in the backyard and water me every now and then if I look like I'm dying. If that's too creepy for my kids, they can just go bury me in a park or something. I won't care - I'll be dead! I love the thought of repurposing my body though!
In addition, I'd love for my kids to take the money that they would have spent on a plot, coffin and tombstone and go on vacation or do something fun with the money. Maybe it's morbid sounding, but that just sounds like such a better investment and more fun than a big wooden box and big stone, doesn't it?
Now I'm off to change my will. CLICK HERE if you want more information on becoming a tree when you die!
