UK to offer eco-friendly burial alternative for the first time.

The UK's biggest funeral care provider will offer water cremation also known as resomation services later this year following rising demand for more environmentally friendly end of life options.It's the method that South African anti-apartheid hero,Desmond Tutu chose following his death in 2021. Water cremation uses water to bring the body back to skeletal remains.The body is placed in a steel vessel filled with water and an alkaline solution.It is then heated up taking the flesh to its chemical components.After about three to four hours,only the bones remain which are then ground down to white powder,placed in an urn and given to the family. "For decades there have been just two main choices when it comes to end of life arrangements,burial and cremation," Julian Atkinson,director of resomation company stated."We will be providing people with another option for how they leave this world because this natural process uses water but not fire,making it gentler on the body and kinder on environment." https://www.euronews.com/green/2023/07/04/what-is-water-cremation-uk-to-offer-eco-friendly-burial-alternative-for-the-first-time

                This is brilliant, sounds like we can honour climate in life and in death. This should be embraced by all around the globe.

                  With water cremation, the mercury can be captured and safely recycled, further reducing the environmental impact of cremation.

                        It's a good alternative but I'd never have thought of anything close to this ever happens.
