Green Burials Segment On MSNBC Teaches You How To "Die Green"

This afternoon on MSNBC, as part of their "Green is Universal Earth Week" coverage, Contessa Brewer anchored a segment on green burials, environmentally-friendly ways to bury or cremate deceased human bodies. "So maybe you thought about ways to live green, but how about ways to die green?" Brewer asked. Below, we've captured all of the possible ways Brewer and her guest (environmental journalist and author Mark Harris) suggest you can "die green," from turning your ashes into paint and letting your loved ones paint a picture to being buried in a "woodland cemetery."
