Water cremation, or aquamation, is a far more natural and environmentally friendly than any other form of after-life matters. Instead of fire, aquamation utilizes alkaline water to rinse away the flesh and leave only the bones of your pet. This method yields far more ashes and creates excellent fertilizing water that can be repurposed in your garden to even grow a fresh tree or shrub in your pet’s honor. It allows for a natural and healthy way for your pet’s body to return to nature and be a part of the circle of life.
Alkaline hydrolysis is what aquamation really is. It uses heat and alkaline water to accelerate the decomposition process and dissolve the tissues in an environmentally ethical fashion.
