Traditional Cremation vs Water Cremation

Fire cremation has long been thought of as more environmentally friendly than burial. But fire cremation is not as environmentally friendly as many would believe.

Traditional cremation releases toxins into the air including the emission of carbon dioxide pollution. To the extent that many communities have set limits on how many hours crematories can run in an effort to reduce the amount of pollutants released in the air.

However, Cremation By Water leaves a finer, sandier ash, without the grisly texture or carbon discoloration that normally comes with fire cremations. The ash is completely sterile, so it can be buried or dispersed without any issues or problems.

Best of all Cremation By Water has no direct emissions of harmful greenhouse gasses or mercury.

Benefits of Cremation By Water:

  • Over 90% energy savings when compared to flame-based cremation.
  • No burning of fossil fuels.
  • No direct emissions of harmful greenhouse gasses or mercury
