In a flash, it happens. Not really sure what or why but… Am I dead? Is this the afterlife? Where’s my body? We all know we’re not going to live forever. Many cultures have strong beliefs about death, and rituals that they practice. But in some places, we have more choices about what happens to our bodies after we die. Why is there so much demand for body parts? What options are there for recycling our healthy, useable parts? And how could it help Earth if we recycle our bodies? How could we turn the remains of our bodies into an artificial reef? Would it be beneficial for the environment to turn our remains into compost?
