    Eliminating pollutants is commendable!

    But “burial parks” with no signs of the dead do not integrate death but try to deny it by making it invisible. Enduring markers are symbols of hope and transcedence. We could create beautiful natural areas WITH attractive markers. Use boulders, not marble!

    Trees alone as markers will lead to charming but anonymous forests. An engraved boulder AND a tree!

    Finally, green burial does NOTHING new to assure grave perpetuity.
