"Aquamation" is cremation by water
A fascinating article from the TYWKIWDBI blog about a different form of cremation. I love hearing about these sorts of things - great inspiration for a SciFi short story, or even great to know if that's what you want done after you die! Just think of the environmental impact alone!
More than four million gallons of toxic embalming fluids and 20 million feet of wood are put in the ground in the U.S. every year, while a single cremation emits as much carbon dioxide as a 1,000-mile car trip.
