Alkaline Hydrolsis or "flameless cremation"

A funeral home in St. Petersburg, Florida will be the first in the country to offer a new, greener, alternative to dying. Alkaline hydrolsis has been described as "flameless cremation", and involves placing the body in a pressurized drum with water, adding a chemical, and heating the drum. The end product is disposed of through the city water system.

It may not be for you, but learning about your options and putting your wishes in legal form is not only taking control of your life, but easy the burden on those you leave behind.
