CAPE TOWN – South Africans now have the option of a green death.
Instead of being cremated or buried, you can opt for a process called aquamation.
The environmentally friendly process has been launched in Cape Town.
It saves 90 percent more energy than fire-based cremation.
Globally, aquamation is considered a cleaner process.
And with cemeteries running out of space, it seems a wise option.
Water Cremation, by Aquamation, is a more natural, ethical and environmentally friendly alternative to cremations. It uses water instead of fire to return a body to nature. … With Water Cremation, by Aquamation, an individual body is gently placed in a clean, stainless steel vessel.
