More families are choosing alternative burial options instead of a traditional burial with embalming. Cremation is becoming more popular than traditional burial in the United States, and the NFDA predicts it will soon be the end-of-life option of choice in every state. Another alternative burial option that’s gaining popularity is green burials. People are becoming more conscious of their impact on the environment and are interested in eco-friendly end-of-life options. A few other alternative burial options that are on the rise are alkaline hydrolysis and human composting. With the funeral profession constantly changing with new funeral trends, these alternative burial options may become the dispositions of choice in the future.
