Aquamation: the new green funeral

Aquamation “uses water instead of fire to return the body to nature”.

Your body gets put in a stainless steel tank, which is filled with a special liquid that speeds up the decomposition process.

The resulting liquid can then be used as fertiliser, or released into the ocean.

It is being marketed as a “natural” and eco-friendly alternative.

It’s just the usual process sped-up, with none of the toxins that a rotting body can produce or the pollution from a cremation.

Left over bones are then pulverised and given to the family.

It costs around $1000.
