Not everybody wants to be buried in a cemetery. In Switzerland, you can have your ashes scattered to the wind, in a forest or over a glacier.

    The opener is incredibly sensationalist! And not quite is permitted to have your ashes scattered almost anywhere in Switzerland (the same as in many many other countries, such as UK). What is not permitted is mass scattering of ashes, which certain euthanasia companies have been doing by dumping pots of ash and bones in some lakes.
