If you bury a corpse without a concrete liner, you run the risk of contaminated the ground water with the embalming fluids, bacteria, heavy metals and bodily substances.
Cremation returns most of the same things to the air and to the ashes, sans embalming fluids, but if air scrubbers are used, cremation is greener. You can use the ashes to fertilize a tree and the tree will sort it out for you.
Donating your body to science is great, but if you die and they do not need your body or cannot get it to where they need it, your family is stuck trying to find a mortuary, burial plot, etc.
Make your decision and leave your wishes in your will. Make sure your family knows.
