If you live, or more to the point die, in East Sussex, you can depart this world with full green credentials.
Arka Funerals, with shops in both Brighton and Lewes, offer green funerals.
They offer a choice of eco-friendly caskets, including those made from wool, bamboo, willow or cardboard, and can even advise on woodland burials.
This may sound strangely rare and unusual, but they are known for their understanding and friendly service and are in the Good Funeral Guide 2013.
