My mother passed 10 years ago and she was a rather green leaning person. We talked about her wishes before she died and decided no embalming and a natural, cedar casket, which will rot after a few years. So that is what we did. You cannot have an open casket funeral with no embalming, but I think those are rather morbid and gross anyway. It all went well. This was in Seattle, WA.
