Car free funeral procession

Ok, not really but after my Halloween bike project, I've found that this thing is actually a pretty handy storage compartment

An ideal solution for touring, too! Especially for velovampires.

Very nice! I would imagine though, that if someone were as serious about keeping their carbon footprint to a minimum as to suggest they be taken to the final resting place on a Big Dummy, chances are they would just opt for the more environmentally friendly cremation.

Plenty of room for trick-or-treat candy.

^^ they use liquid nitrogen in the process. Takes a lot of energy to manufacture, transport and store. Not exactly environmentally friendly either.

I did enjoy all the responses

To this I would agree except, what happens if you don't die next to a fireplace??

Good point, but probably emits less carbon than burning a human corpse. A better way would be to bury people in shallow graves without coffins.
