California has recently passed a law that will give its residents another option when it comes to disposing of body, according to Fox News reports "California looks to 'green-ify' death after Brown signs water cremation bill."
People are becoming more and more concerned about their environmental footprint and focus in everyday life on cleaner cars and recycling. However, those who want an environmentally friendly final resting place do not have many options.
The best option for most people is to get a casket that is easily biodegradable, but not all funeral homes offer them.
Traditional cremation requires a hot fire that produces carbon emissions and uses fossil fuel.
A new cremation method uses an alkaline solution heated to 300 degrees that liquefies human remains. Instead of producing ashes, the remains are a brown liquid substance that resembles maple syrup. The method does not use fossil fuels and does not emit carbon.
California is the 15th state to allow this form of water-cremation. If it becomes popular there, it may move to other states, including yours.
