Green Funerals Week: Aquamation

Wednesday, October 21, 2020
12:00 pm1:00 pm

Alkaline hydrolysis or "Aquamation" is a gentle process that uses water, temperature, pressure, and alkalinity (potassium hydroxide) to reduce the body to bones, which are then processed into ashes and returned to the family in an urn. Cremation does the same reduction using flame, however Aquamation uses 1/8th of the energy. This disposition option is now legal in 16 other states, including Oregon, California, and Colorado!

Join us for this session covering how aquamation came to be and what it is now!
