Green Cremation ~ ‘Alkaline Hydrolysis’

                                      What is Green Cremation


  • This so-called “water cremation process” is gaining in popularity. It offers people the option of having their remains dissolved in a hot chemical liquid bath. Advocates say it’s a more environmentally friendly option than burial or fire cremation.
