With the rise of eco-friendly lifestyles, companies such as Aquagreen Dispositions have made an effort to ensure that our after-life rituals are just as good for the planet as the ones we carry out each day.
Aquagreen Dispositions is a company that specializes in 'Bio Cremation,' which it described as "a gentle, eco-friendly alternative to flame-based cremation or casket burials." Unlike traditional cremation, Bio-Cremation involves blending water with an alkali solution of potassium hydroxide. This process uses just one-eighth the amount of energy used for flame-based cremation and no harmful emissions are emitted into the atmosphere. This process essentially accelerates the process of natural decomposition, ultimately returning the body to its natural state faster and with less damage to the environment than flame-based cremation or burial.
