Final Expressions
Death is the last chance we have to speak out.
Why not express your life in a truly unique way.
This site list some of the most creative ways of scattering ashes and environmentally friendly burial ideas for a Green funeral.


Scattering Plans

If you wish your remains scattered it is important to discuss your wishes ahead of time with the person who will do the scattering ceremony.

When it comes to scattering there are many options. If the location is on private property you should seek permission of the owner. If it is on public land you should check local regulations. Many people pick a place close to home that held special meaning to the deceased. This might be a place of recreation like, the local park, hunting or camping site, fishing hole, a hiking trail, a scenic view etc. There is no limit.

Also when scattering the remains in an anonymous, unmarked or public place. Access to the area may be restricted for some reason in the future, undeveloped land may be developed, or other conditions may arise that could make it difficult for your survivors to visit the site to remember you. So discuss your desires with loved ones in advance. It is always a good idea to retain some of the ashes to keep or to scatter in a separate location in the future. Keepsake urns are ideal for this purpose.

Survivors need some thing to hold onto or some place to go and reflect on previous memories for the years to come. This can be any place that will be meaningful to the deceased or the survivors. Some cemeteries have scattering gardens as well.

What does Cremation cost?

The high expense of traditional funerals is another reason why cremations have become more popular. But cremation itself is no guarantee of a good value in a funeral.
Make sure you understand your options and don't get roped into services you don't really want or need.
You may wish to forgo one or all of the following in a cremation: the casket, the viewing, the visitation and the funeral service. Called "direct cremation," this option can cost consumers $1000 or less.
The Funeral Rule, a federal law that protects consumers from unfair funeral practices, says:
The funeral director should not charge you for embalming services with direct cremation because there will not be a viewing.
There is no state that has a law requiring the purchase of a casket with a cremation (in spite of what funeral directors may tell you).
You have the right to purchase an unfinished wood box to be used prior to cremation.
Finally, it is not necessary to purchase an expensive urn for remains. Crematories may place remains in a metal, plastic or cardboard container adequate for burying or transporting.
However, if you choose direct cremation, you definitely may still wish to hold a memorial service run by the family. Talk with your loved ones ahead of time. If planning your own funeral, don't just go with the cheapest option.
Keepsake Urns are useful to save small amounts of ashes for scattering or sharing with family members. It's not always possible to please the entire family so allowing each member an option of how or what they do with the Ashes can eliminate strife among family members.
