As an environmentally minded person, I was thinking: I don't want to take up a plot of land once I have passed that can't be used by anyone or anything else. I also don't want to be turned into ashes or be fed to fish, so what are my options to be dispersed among nature in an environmentally friendly manner and provide for nutrients for new life that comes after I pass, without taking up a plot of land on Earth for the foreseeable future?

Hi Marie......must be the same article I just read recently. Pretty unique idea, don't you think?
Thanks! This is what I was looking for as far as giving my body back to new life, but I'm not sure I want to be cremated. Seems kind of creepy.
I think it is a really beautiful idea. What better way to give to your planet and to the future for all living things. :) Think I'm interested in donating my brain, and then having this bio-urn somewhere where it won't be taken down.
fpherj48, It's funny how things work that way. If there was ever something the spirit guides would get involved in, it would be this topic. I thought of it after passing an old graveyard recently. I will look into the bio urn in the link above.
Grey Temples..Good for you!..I have the same.My body is donated to the Medical School at a State University I haven't spoken to my sons about my ashes because I am still deciding.. If I don't specify, I guess it will be up to them.
How wonderful for you as well! Hey, we are only using our bodies so why not allow science use them after we are done with them. :)
That is a great idea. As someone with a life-long interest in science and the betterment of mankind, I will consider donating my body to further scientific research.
