Environmental concerns have led to new options for putting your loved ones to rest. While traditional burial was once the norm, in some areas of Canada, over 50 percent of the population chooses cremation. This decision is made, in part, due to the concerns for the environment. But, there is another similar method that may be a better choice for the environment. Resomation reduces the carbon footprint by eliminating mercury emissions, using less energy and returning clean water to the water cycle.
