You can now buy glitter caskets so you look fabulous in the afterlife
Unlike most ceremonies like weddings and christenings, most of us tend not to think too deeply about the details of our own funeral. I mean, we wouldn't even be alive to witness it, so the details are pretty irrelevant to most people.
So while most people would be invested in say, the designs, and color schemes used in their wedding, they probably wouldn't be too bothered about what their casket looked like.

“Our glitter coffins have passed the FFMA coffin testing requirements for them to be able to be used for cremations and burials," the Glitter Coffin Company wrote on its website.
"Our small glitter shards are made of a non Chlorinated Plastic which does not give off any emissions when cremated. Our Glitter shards are then added on to a 100% cotton fabric backed cloth which is bio-degradable over time when used for burials also."
