There is some support for Bio Cremation or Green Cremation in Washington State. This according to the Washington Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association. The idea of cremation with a good carbon footprint has wide appeal across the United States.
There are three main players in this market in North America, Matthews International, BioSafe Engineering and CycledLife.
We are looking into adopting new regulations permitting resomation in Washington state. It seems to be an excellent alternative to traditional cremation-by-fire, the resulting product is actually more attractive than traditional cremated remains (if such can be said to be “attractive”), and we can see no reason as a profession to oppose progress of this sort.
