You know they say nothing's certain in life, except death and taxes. Well, I have no interest in helping you with your taxes, but have you ever thought about what happens to our bodies when we die? Why do we bury them six feet under, or cremate them and release their ashes? And are these things good for a planet with seven billion living people and an estimated 100 billion that are dead and gone?

While some (okay, most) may seem bizarre, many alternative burial practices on the horizon aim to be safer for our planet. Check out the video above to learn more, and don't forget to leave a comment at the bottom of the page. Come on, talk nerdy to me!

With death being a prophetic inevitability for all of us. I must laugh at myself and at us all. We are all so unprepared and illiterate to the one thing We know is imminent. Absolutely unprepared for the inevitable that does occur every second on everyday. "The dead knoweth not". This means I am already there! Why else would I be where I am right now? Thank you very informative site. I really am grateful for finding you.
