City Considers Burials In Egg Cartons, Wicker Baskets COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- The Colorado Springs City Council is considering a proposal to offer "green burials" at the city's two cemeteries. The burials would consist of bodies being put in bags, wicker baskets or egg-carton boxes. City officials said the approach would be less expensive than traditional burials. According to the proposal, the city would also cut its costs because such burials would require no watering or sprinkler systems for the plots and minimal mowing.....
I already consider myself lucky that Kurt and I have purchased a plot right next to the Quakers! But to be buried next to Quakers, in an EGG CARTON would be the fulfillment of my fondest desires. What bliss!
