They now have natural or "green" burials, where you can do just that - be buried with only some kind of natural fiber "shroud" and without embalming.  The idea is to hasten the natural process of decomposition and not spend big money.

sound suspiciously like what my parents picked...no embalming, fiberboard casket...

but I guess the State is worried about the lingering effects of the COVID virus...

Pine deteriorates eventually. But not as quick as fiberboard...

I would pick fiberboard.  I know I won't care and I would rather my $$$ go to my children.  As it is, I plan to be cremated.  Don't want to take up space either.

Speaking of saving money for your kids and GKs -- I joked with my sister that when I am cremated, she should go to Hobby Lobby and buy a plain ginger jar or something similar for my ashes, and at my memorial service, there should be a sign by the urn that says "I am finally down to my ideal weight!"  Hah!   And sometime later, scatter my ashes somewhere in the desert.  I don't want to be made into a paperweight and spend eternity on somebody's desk, or a shelf at Goodwill.  LOL

my Granny is scattered beneath a tree in the desert near where she lived... 

Did you know you can make synthetic diamonds out of a person's hair?

Another Aunt Margaret-ism, they won't transport a body across state lines without embalming. ( She lives in Missouri and will be buried in Kansas)

Now that is a thought!!  Eternity traveling around the country via Goodwill!!

when my dad was cremated we HAD to purchase a container from the mortuary.  And the overall cost was not significantly less than a casket burial.
