Cremation is often wrongly considered as the most
environmentally friendly way of organising a funeral.
A cremation produces an average of 50kg of CO2. They are
also responsible for around 15% of mercury emissions in the country
as a whole. Other chemicals released into the atmosphere include
dioxin, hydrochloric acid and sulphur dioxide and of course there's
all that timber which goes to waste.
