CONT

L’objectif des funérailles écologiques consiste à limiter au maximum les impacts des obsèques sur l’environnement. Les anciens cercueils de luxe en bois massif sont alors proscrits pour céder leur place à des modèles biodégradables.

Dans le contexte écologique, qui se veut économique et sobre, on emploie indifféremment les termes «obsèques» et «funérailles».
