Green Cremation Comes to Minnesota

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.
