Any nature-lover has the issue of deciding what they want done with their remains when they are no longer around. Scattering the ashes is harmful to the environment, and burials use chemicals, among other concerns. The Neptune Society has found a way to please eco-lovers everywhere.

The Neptune Society has created a memorial reef; a 16-acre man-made reef that is certified by the Green Burial Council not to be harmful to the environment. The remains are taken to the reef, and a name plaque is placed in the spot. Check out the new way to live your after life. Stats for Coral Reef Cremations Trending: Older & Mild
