My progressive neighbors to the north have done it again, beating us to the punch and out greening us here in Wisconsin. Just the second state in the nation, a funeral home now offers "green cremation". A mixture of water and chemicals, as opposed to fire, return the body to an organic state. A process that would take 25 years in a common burial, takes 2 to 3 hours. The cost, about $2300. The news story states that green cremations are currently in the works in Illinois as well as California.
