Resomation is an alternative to cremation and burial which offers a number environmental benefits including:
The process needs to be legal in each country before it can take place. In the UK we have approached the UK government and Scottish Parliament and we are awaiting the outcome of those.
In the US and Canada the process is already regulated in more than 19 states and several provinces and is in the process of being considered in many others. In the USA Resomation is marketed as Green Cremation in Minnesota and sometimes referred to as water cremation.
Elsewhere across the globe this is a work in progress. For those of you who feel strongly committed to Resomation we would encourage you to contact the relevant authorities in your region to apply pressure to make it an available choice.
