Eco-friendly cremations with cow dung logs
A traditional hindu funeral pyre takes six hours and burns 500–600 kilograms of wood to burn a body completely. Every year 50-60 million trees(4.5 million tonnes of wood) are burned during cremations in India, which results in about 8 million tonnes of carbon dioxide or greenhouse gas emissions.
With ever-rising pollution, increased deforestation, and other activities that lead to environmental degradation, being eco-friendly is no more a choice but the need of the hour.
You don’t need to put in a lot of efforts to go green; rather, making some simple changes can help you reduce your carbon footprint on the environment.
Did you know, replacing firewood with our cow dung logs in funeral pyres can help save our forests, reduce our carbon footprints, and cause less air and water pollution?
