Caitlin Doughty is the funniest mortician I know. OK, so I don't actually know her, but she is funny, and she is a mortician. If you're wondering what the difference is between traditional burials and the "green" version of burials, she describes it pretty well here. You could totally watch this and then go make your own pros and cons list if you're like me and have a weird affinity for list-making. Have at it!
