    “Burial is dead,” Mr. Wilson said. “It’s going to go away. It’s not sustainable. Too many people and not enough land.”

    Of course, he is going to say that, he has a machine to try and peddle, and at a half million dollars he hopes to sell lots of them.

    There is a Catholic monastery not too far from Atlanta that has natural burial.

    the body is wrapped in a shroud or placed in a biodegradable container. It is buried in a shallow grave -- about 3 feet deep -- where microbe-rich soils exists to efficiently break down the body naturally. Above ground, two to three feet of topsoil is mounded on top, and the grave is marked with a living object, such as a tree or wildflowers, or some type of inconspicuous ecologically functional marker.

    Sustainable burial without chemicals and cremation that also theoretically allows plot reuse in as little as 20 years. They do take cremations as well.

    The only thing to balk at is prices as the cheapest burial is 2500(some plots go up to 10k), plus 700 for digging the hole. They also allow you to buy a stone, like a boulder, that is engraved with your info as a marker.
