Natural, chemical-free alternative to aquamation
Earth provides a natural, less water-intensive alternative to aquamation (alkaline hydrolysis).
Return to nature
We're specialists in soil transformation, a natural, chemical-free alternative to aquamation (also known as alkaline hydrolysis). Over a 45-day process, we gently transform a body into nutrient-rich soil
Families choose how much soil they’d like returned – to scatter or plant – and the remainder is sent to our Olympic Peninsula conservation site for land restoration projects.
The process is natural, uses 90% less water than aquamation, and the soil becomes a means to return nutrients from our bodies to the natural world. In turn, we restore forests, sequester carbon, and revitalize challenged ecosystems.
