If you care about living sustainably when you’re alive, why not take a strong stance on it after you die, too?
Recently in the news around the death of Nobel Prize winner and beloved human rights activist Desmond Tutu is “aquamation,” a more earth-friendly alternative to cremation.
During the standard cremation process, dead bodies are placed in a cremation chamber. The space is heated to around 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately four hours. The body is reduced to ashes during that time, which are gathered and returned to the family or next of kin.
