1. Cost Effective

Simply put, cremation costs less than traditional burial. The costs typically associated with a burial funeral can add up quickly. Cremation gives the family a cost effective method that also offers much more flexibility than traditional burial. In 2015 a traditional burial can cost upwards of 62% higher than the cost of a cremation service. 


2. Convenience

As human kind are living longer, many elderly are choosing to relocate to retirement communities all over the country. Cremation offers the families the ability to travel and return their loved ones ashes to a specific location. Also, funerals are stressful for the loved ones of a deceased. The rush of conducting a memorial service at the time of funeral can make it even more stressful. Cremations, however, give the loved ones the time and liberty to conduct the memorial ceremonies later using the cremation remains.


3. Cultural, Traditional, and Religious acceptance

Since early 2000 the cremation rate in the United States, as well as globally, has been on a rapid rise. Many have attributed this to generations setting newer traditions. Religious institutions have also started to sway to be more accepting of cremation as a viable and spiritual option.


4. Environment-Friendly

Cremation is an eco-friendly process that prevents the release of the toxins into the Earth. Before burying the dead, several toxic chemicals are applied to the corpse to prevent the body from decaying. These chemicals being toxic in nature, pollute the environment. Cremation, however, does not require the body to be embalmed and is, therefore, considered more eco-friendly.


5. Simply more options

Cremation offers a level of personality and uniqueness to the process of commemoration. Scattering tubes offer the ability to lay your loved ones ashes in their favorite spot, be it a lake or scenic mountain top. Cremation Urns for home storage have far exceeded the traditional one or two styles in the past. From beautiful butterfly urn to a patriotic wooden box, the wide array of options are things you can not get with traditional burial.


Summary

Dealing with the death of a loved one is never easy, but the fact remains the same that death is an inevitable reality of life, and there is nothing one can do to change it. One can, however, keep the memories of their loved ones alive by preserving their cremation remains in a cremation urn.
