While weddings were once extremely traditional affairs, many people have begun to bring their own personal flair and interests into them. After all, a wedding is all about the bride and groom, so there's no harm in highlighting what makes them special. Many women have begun to look back to Sailor Moon, a manga and anime from the 1990s that's recently seeing a resurgence as a great theme for a wedding.
Eco-friendly funerals offer a way for families to honor their loved ones while having a better impact on the environment. Bio-degradable caskets and urns are an option, but there are even more ways you can create an environmentally conscious funeral for your dearly departed. Here are three ways you can incorporate eco-friendly options into virtually every aspect of the funeral.

Getting cremated is already considered to be somewhat environmentally friendly because, unlike burial, cremation takes up no space in the ground and involves no placement of metal or concrete in the earth.

The following tips will help you stay green as you decide what you want for your future cremation and memorial service.
It is estimated that more than 18,000 newborn children are adopted in the U.S. each year.

While it is suggested by agencies that there are few birth parents who change their minds once a placement has been made (figures ranging from 1 per 45 adoptions to 4 in 940 cases), it has however been recognized, that as a birth parent you are quite likely to change your mind before the final placement of your baby.
