Water cremation creates life after death

Clip | 4m 57s

Legalized in Colorado in 2011, water cremation combines water and potassium hydroxide to gently dissolve the body over 18 hours. What's left are skeletal remains and a nutrient-dense liquid. Be a Tree Cremation has partnered with Half Moon Farm to use this liquid to nourish non-edible flowers and plants, completing the cycle of life.
