If cremation has been chosen, the same principles apply as to burial, ie the coffin must be ecologically friendly and clothing and linings which give off the least harmful fumes should be chosen. Basically, natural fibres and materials should be used wherever possible.

Of course, following the cremation, the ashes can be placed at a green burial ground if desired, either scattered, or placed in a suitable container and buried. Similarly, the ashes can be taken away and scattered by the family virtually anywhere without causing any detrimental impact to the environment.
