What do you think about a green funeral/burial? Where is this option available?
I think it sounds like an interesting idea.
The Green Burial Council (http://www.greenburialcouncil.org/) has a wealth of information on green funerals, including information about providers.
You might also want to check out the book Grave Matters: A Journey Through the Modern Funeral Industry to a Natural Way of Burial. See http://gravematters.us/ for more information. To find libraries near you who have the book, see http://worldcat.org/oclc/71189919.
I also found some posts on the topic at Treehugger. The most recent include:
