New Good Carbon Footprint|Bio Cremation| Rockets you to the Great Beyond-Your Funeral Guy.

Traditional Cremation by Fire and Traditional burial give our Earth a Green, Carbon Footprint problem. Here is a summary of the Carbon Foot Print problem with  Traditional Funerals.

Of the more than 2.4 million deaths per year in the United States, roughly 70 percent of the newly departed are interred in traditional caskets — that is, wood, steel or even copper caskets, many of which are then encased in slabs of reinforced concrete to prevent the weight of the earth from causing them to collapse. For those who go the casket route, embalming with toxic chemicals like formaldehyde remains common.

As a result, the environmental footprint of the dead is a heavy one. Every year, cemeteries across the nation bury approximately 30 million board feet of hardwood, 104,000 tons of steel, 2,700 tons of copper and bronze and 1.6 million tons of reinforced concrete, according to statistics gathered by environmental groups and advocates for green burial.

Here is a summary of the carbon footprint of cremation verses bio cremation or resomation, or water resolution

On Friday June 4th 2010  i had the privilege of viewing  demonstration of Alkaline hydrolysis decomposition.

A look inside the empty machine

CycledLife(TM) has a human machine being shipped to the funeral industry. I was invited to view the machine on Friday, June 4th 2010.This was a demonstration of accelerated Decomposition

The main point is that it has been observed that Alkaline Hydrolysis Works. Call it Bio Cremation, Water Resolution, Resomation, or green cremation-Alkaline Hydrolysis is simply a new form of Disposition, that is accelerated decomposition.

Here are some pictures from the event.

    Cutting down your carbon footprint would seem to be what all of us wishes to test to do any more. Still, several people today imagine that it is exceedingly tricky to do this and if they are unable to do this shortly to what they really feel to be reliable they give up. Now I know that for some many people they will be on the lookout for an excuse to give up shortly, but for people of us that do not mind carrying out a couple common factors that can reap a colossal reduction in your carbon footprint even when at the very same time you can typically see a reduction in your electrical monthly bill it does fork out off.
