Both options are not very good, you know. During cremation, a huge amount of pollutants is released into the atmosphere, incl. and carcinogens, which are in no way processed by living organisms and do not disappear from the environment (except that they decompose over time). Burial in a coffin leads to the poisoning of soil and groundwater / groundwater by decomposition products, because there are no normal conditions for decomposition and consumption of decomposition products by soil organisms. Such things.

The most effective method of burial from the point of view of ecology is the burial of the body at a shallow depth (1-1.3 meters), in non-synthetic tissue, followed by planting at the burial site of a tree. Minus - takes up a lot of space. Pros - allows the body to decompose completely and recycle, to some extent solves the problem of deforestation. Plus it's pretty darn aesthetically pleasing. Agree, it's nice to know that even after death you will give life, albeit in a different guise.

Cremation. Nature itself will save us from combustion products, namely, the photosynthesis of trees will absorb carbon dioxide, and the dod will beat and mix the residues of heavy substances with the ground

The coffin, in addition to the occupied space, also occupies a certain piece of land for a long time. In a couple of centuries, the earth itself will turn into a large cemetery, and the lack of housing and land for growing food will force you to throw your bones from place to place or even build houses and plant gardens on bones.

The coffin can also be an environmentally friendly business. from the point of view of ecology, we still return useful substances to the ground, and then you look and the trees will grow well, but not a good thing from a moral point of view

If we are to bury ourselves, then it is better to go to feed the fish somewhere in the Mariana Trench, that is, where you will not be disturbed for a long time
