If you are trying to determine between being cremated or being buried when you die, you have a big decision to make. While both are very respectful ways to care for your body once you have passed on, there are certain benefits that come along with cremation. This article is going to discuss 3 excellent reasons why you should choose cremation services.
It Is A Good Option For The Environment
One thing that is not often thought of, but is also a great benefit, is how much better cremation is for the environment then a regular burial. One reason being that you don't have to use embalming fluids for the body because it is cremated. Embalming fluid contains ingredients and chemicals that are potentially harmful to the environment. Another reason why cremation is better for the environment is because it isn't taking up space in the land, like a large casket would. Since land is a very tight resource in some places, it is important to preserve as much of it as possible.
It Is More Affordable
If you chose to be cremated, you are only going to have to pay to have your body cremated. However, if you choose to be buried in a casket, you are going to need to pay to have your body embalmed and otherwise prepared. You are also going to have to pay to have a casket specially made for you and for a lot within the cemetery where your casket can be buried and your headstone can be put in. If this is not something you can afford, and if you don't want to leave your loved ones with this expense, then you should consider having your body cremated instead. This is still a wonderful tribute to you and one that allows your loved ones to remember you.
The Process Is Very Simple
If you are someone that thrives on simplicity and it is a motto of your life, then having your body cremated after death would seem very fitting for you because the is a very simple process. The process of being cremated is much simpler than being buried, and it can be done very quickly. Your body will simply need to be taken into be cremated after you have passed, and then you can have the ashes placed in an urn. Your family can then spread your ashes, distribute your ashes, or keep them in all in the urn.
