Talk of Eco Friendly Burials are growing, as recently reported in The Huffington Post. Yes it is true that  more Americans want eco Friendly Burials and home funerals. Green Burial grounds are opening across the United States. The reality is that the number of  green burials beyond the Traditional Jewish or Muslim  green funeral is not high. Mostly what  we have in terms of Green burial is just talk.  however when thoughts turn to talk they soon turn to action.

The latest form of green burial is alkaline hydrolysis disposition also known as green cremation, resomation, water resolution, water cremation, aqamation,  resomation, cycledlife, and  cycledburial. It is a new form of burial that has the lowest carbon footprint of all forms of burial.

    Green cemeteries are not ecological. The putrefaction process and use of land for this specific purpose make “green burial” less than ideal for one’s survivors. Throughout history, disease causing microorganisms: bacterium and virus, in buried bodies have led to pandemics, which have killed more people than all the people who have ever lost their lives in battle.

    CycledLife™ is the perfect complement to a green burial ground. It reduces the footprint of the gravesites. It eliminates the problem with wildlife exhuming the deceased. Those who choose embalming could still have a green burial, as the formaldehyde would be rendered harmless. CycledLife eliminates 100% of all bacteria, viruses and prions. Plus, the CycledLife remains would in most states be exempt from the laws and regulations for setting up a cemetery, as no unsterile human remains are placed in the ground. This will save consumers a lot of money compared to burying unsterile remains in a “green” cemetery.

    It is true that even the greenest funeral is not green in the true sense of the world. Natural Burial may be more accurate. One could say that Alkaline Hydrolysis disposition is accelerated decomposition.
